It's certainly promising. Though may I ask, why are you using a different website?

P. G.
I am still at work on a timeline of exploration, but if you don't mind some rough edges take a look at it: https://www.tiki-toki.com/timeline/entry/590687/European-Explorers-from-600BC/.

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, I plan on adding dates from American history all the way up to the present, including the Cold War and NATO. As I stated in the description, I am constantly updating it and will probably have it finished around May 2019. I will make sure to add more details about the reasoning behind these events.

This is great!!! Only thing I may say could be added (very small thing) The amount of effort you put into this its worth doing the final 1% and adding....Why?

For example Boston massacre you state

A brawl between British soldiers and Bostonians. Colonists were upset by the Quartering Act, so decided to throw stuff at some soldiers. It eventually escalated, and 5 Bostonians were shot to death. Propagandists like Paul Revere made it seem like an ordered execution to anger the colonists.

Why did the Quartering Act upset the Colonists? Small suggestment not really needed.

I also have a few questions? (Im really excited by this timeline)

A) Are you going to go further back in time ten 1490s
B) And are you gonna talk more about Us's foreign Policies and there position in Nato
C) Finally the importance of the Cold war?
