I am in search of references and sources that will provide me with global slices of history. In other words, I would like a reference that will give me an accurate view of what was happening at a particular time throughout the world. Say 1492 AD... not only was Columbus making his epic voyage, but what else was happening at the same time in the Middle East, China, Russia, etc. I want to see what was changing in these various regions as we as a country were forming. Also what was happening globally as our country continued to change over the past century. Any and all information, sources, links, etc. are greatly appreciated.
And now.... for my quote of the day:
"I do have a test today, that wasn't bullshit. It's on European Socialism. I mean really, what's the point. I'm not European, I don't plan on being European... so who gives a crap if they are Socialists. They could be Fascist Anarchist, it still wouldn't change the fact that I don't own a car." - Ferris Bueller, 1986
As for the car, way to go Kevin... can't what to see the new ride.
