内容説明

Completely revised and expanded with 200 new entries, The Great American History Fact-Finder covers a wide spectrum of American history and culture, including political events, military history, sports, arts, entertainment, landmark legislation, and business. Here is essential information on everything from the Mayflower to space exploration, from the dot-com boom and bust to the Stanley Cup. The book's 2,200 concise entries, arranged from A to Z, bring our nation's past into sharp focus while also offering just plain useful facts about the well known and not so well known: - Who ran on the campaign slogan "Don't swap horses in midstream"?- In what year was the Super Bowl first played?- Where did the westbound and eastbound tracks of the transcontinental railroad meet?- When did events at Yalta, the Bay of Pigs, and Kent State take place?- What did the swimmer Gertrude Ederle achieve in 1926?
