Overview

"Native Americans, settlers, immigrants, and their offspring transformed a virtual wilderness into a metropolis. Seattle & King County Timeline tracks these past 150 years of struggle and sacrifice, ingenuity and endurance, tragedy and triumph." "Meet pioneers and tribal chiefs, workers and dreamers, firebrands and scalawags as they stake their claims to history and build a community. Revisit the half-forgotten deeds and misdeeds that still echo in today's headlines, and trace the spreading branches of a modern city from the first, fragile seeds planted a century and a half ago on the shores of Puget Sound and Elliott Bay." Seattle & King County Timeline encapsulates thousands of original essays presented by HistoryLink, the nation's first online encyclopedia of community history written expressly for the Internet.
