Re: Timeline of California History



Here are some dates for your timeline.  They are mostly related to Southern California and they are somewhat idiosyncratic.  But, whatever, here they are.  Thanks for your dedication at trying to keep H-California useful and relevant.

Query: Timeline of California History

Dear H-Californians,

Recently I asked if anyone knew of a good timeline on the web for the history of California.  I recevied one response from H-California Editorial Board member John Putnam who confirmed my understanding that there was no such item online--at least one that was much good for university students, anyway.

So, John and I have decided to take on the task of creating a timeline of California history to be housed on the H-California website.  It will be a simple document, probably in Word format.  But we need your help.
