Google Time Line Feature

by fifer1863 on October 27, 2008

Thanks to Chris C over at the Sparks of Hope Blog for this one:

Did you know that Google has a timeline feature? Go to and type the following into the search box: civil war view:timeline

Or you can click HERE

This will give you a timeline of the Civil War. You can then proceed to click on a month or year of the war and be taken to a page with information about that particular month.


Very nice tool.

Until next time…

Your blog is so professional. I was very impressed with the Google timeline tool. I was wondering if you knew about Gapminder? I think it would be a great analytical tool for your work. Thanks for sharing your blog. I have included it on my blogroll.

Was it really a “civil” war?

As I understand it from Ms Croxton my 100 year old South Carolina high school history teacher ( she probably was there at the time ) the states had formed a separate country and were not seeking control over the rest of the place. The northern states actually invaded a sovereign country.
