Overview

This book is an easy-to-read comprehensive look at history-making events and people from 1608 to 2007. It has over 1,000 concise facts about Delaware's history that gives a chronological picture, both figuratively and literally, as well as a daily look at how those events molded and shaped the physical, political, religious, and socio-economic landscapes of this state. There are over 130 beautifully-detailed photos and illustrations of people, places, and events; over 480 helpful reference notes, and over 100 reference books, periodicals, newspaper articles, internet sites, journals, diaries, and meeting notes for further study and research. This book gives brief, yet concise facts about the most important events and people that shaped this state. Not only does it give a daily look at Delaware's history for each day of the year, but also it gives a time- line look at the history as it unfolds from year to year, starting in 1608.This is an effort to make students, life-long residents, new residents, as well as visitors more aware of Delaware's glorious history that has earned it such notable nick-names as 'The Diamond State', 'Small Wonder', 'Corporate Capital', 'Uncle Sam's Pocket Handkerchief', 'The Peach State', 'The Chemical Capital', and 'The First State' just to name a few.This history is written in the narrative form of a diary to engage the reader's interest. The goal is to relate the history in a way that would be easy for the most novice of readers and, at the same time, engaging and challenging for more advanced readers and researchers. This is the history book every Delawarean and would-be Delawarean should have in their collection.
