Where do I find a book or chart of historical events that took place at the same time for the 19th and 20th century in North America?

Asked by kelly (1908points) February 28th, 2008

I want to know, for example, what was happening in Texas in the summer of 1897 and what was happening in San Francisco at the same time.

I’m not sure if this book is as specific as you need, but there’s a fascinating series of books called “The Timetables of History”, specifically “The Timetables of History:A Horizontal Linkage of People and Events” sold on Amazon, that timelines important events into cultural, science, political, entertainment, etc. on a year-to-year basis, going back to the beginnings of recorded history.
