This chronology covers the years 1789 to 1800. It contains more than 850
entries, about 70 per year on average. The entries gather information from
many sources, which are indicated by the "full entry" button provided for
each entry when you search the chronology. The entries whose button reads
"full entry with additional details" provide information and sometimes
further reading suggestions.
Many other chronologies and timelines, in print and on the Internet,
offer overviews of the most prominent events of the 1790s. By putting many
more events in a searchable framework, this chronology offers instead the
capability to generate custom chronologies of the period according to the
interests of the reader.
Using the links at the left, you can begin your exploration of the
chronology with the choice to search by year,
category, or keyword.
The category and keyword options will also allow you to limit the years
of your search.
