THIST 410 Early American Politics and Law: The American Revolution: Getting Started

Learning about a particular year in history

Chronologies or timelines allow you to peruse the major events of a given year.  Below is a selection of timelines availabe in the Reference section of the UW Tacoma Library. If you use these resources, I strongly recommend that you check more than one since there are variations.

Getting Background Information

Reference sources, such as specialized encyclopedias or dictionaries, can provide helpful background information and context on any topic, and may lead you to other sources and related articles on a topic. Below are just a few examples of reference sources at the UWT Library that may be helpful for this project. Note: These resources are to help you learn about a topic only. Do NOT cite them in your paper.
