A Time for Freedom

What Happened When in America
A non fiction book by


"I offer this time line as a way of encouraging study of the past and I also hope it will spark conversation about what is truly important for us to know.... America is our home -- and how lucky we are that it is." Did you know that John Adams thought we would celebrate America's birthday on the second of July? That ten generals went on to become president? That our country has had nine different capitals, including Trenton, New Jersey, and Annapolis, Maryland? Bestselling author and historian Lynne Cheney takes readers through America's story of freedom in this time line of key moments in our history. Starting with our nation's beginnings and carrying through to events that affect our lives today, Mrs. Cheney enriches our understanding of defining moments by presenting them with facts that add perspective and by linking them with the historic words of men and women who were there. Placing the important happenings and great figures of our history into context and showing the expansion of freedom in this land that we love, A Time for Freedom is a book families will cherish and want to share together.
