History Day by Day presents an original perspective on over two millennia of human history through 366 quotations, one for each day of the year, including leap years. Each quotation, tied to the anniversary of a significant historical event, captures that moment with the immediacy of an eyewitness or the narrative flair of a chronicler.Every day becomes a window to the past: on March 15, 44 BCE, Julius Caesar falls victim to Brutus and his coconspirators; on May 1, 1851, novelist Charlotte Bront visits Londonís Great Exhibition; on June 28, 1919, in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles, broken-spirited German delegates sign the treaty that brings World War I to its fateful conclusion; and on September 11, 2001, people across the globe watch in horror as the Twin Towers topple and change the world forever.History Day by Day embraces a wide range of voices, moods, and mediums, from the powerful to the impoverished, the revolutionary to the reactionary, the joyful to the grief-stricken, and the eyewitness to the diarist. Both engrossing anthology and informative overview of world history, History Day by Day offers readers entertainment and information in equal measure.
