Perhaps the reader who has been with us from the beginning has begun to wonder how appurtenant is is to use the family tree of one family as a timeline for following American History. The same thought has occurred indeed to this writer. At any event it has been part of the design to expand the time scale to include the very early travelers to this continent.
In casting about the library to find an alternate timeline framework I came across my copy of 10 Days that Unexpectedly Changed America, a book and DVD combo that brought many historians together to recommend and select those 10 most important days in American history.
I have created a new timeline under General History. The first event from 10 Days that Unexpectedly Changed America is the start of the new timeline for American History. As it turns out this event plays a role in the Twigg Hodges family tree. It explains why one of my grandfathers left New England to live in Barbados.
