  • Description

Here at the millenium is a recapturing of American milestones uniquely laid out in subject chronologies. As entertaining as it is informative, this much-needed reference covers not only wars, political and social movements, and cultural pastimes, but also hard-to-research occurrences like aviation and rail accidents, weather disasters, terrorist incidents, and television historical highlights. Special features include separate chronologies for all 50 states, and a section "Notably American," which covers all the winners of the Pulitzer, Newbery Caldecott, Academy, Tony, Emmy, Miss America, Sportsmanship, and other awards. Written by a former senior researcher at NBC News reference library and compiler of four editions of the NBC News Rand McNally News Atlas and Almanac.
