The Chronoscope is now live, and The Picket Line is fully chronologically indexed so you can try out this strange new feature. Find out
- what was going on 100 years ago next month, or
- 50 years ago next year, or
- learn that the same year that Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience was published, Victor Hugo was presiding over the Second General Peace Congress in Paris, Zerah Colburn Whipple was born, and Karl Marx was defending himself against charges of inciting tax rebellion in Germany.
Hours of fun. Fun for the whole family. I guess my next step will be to make it a little speedier; it’s not too efficiently-coded just yet.
