A Graphical Timeline of American History (In Games!)

The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and while it's widely encouraged to be up to date on your American history before celebrating like a true American, who wants to spend their time mulling over dusty old textbooks when they could be out barbecuing?

Fret not, star-spangled readers--the GamePro editors threw together this handy graphical timeline of (streamlined) American history (via games). It dates back to the Declaration of Independence and continues through the 2008 presidential election.

Happy Fourth!
