If you look at the photo above, you'll see the very first reason I fell in love with this chart: the linkage of men, from Adam to Moses. I'm sorry you can't read it. The picture shows that Adam's and Methusaleh's lives overlapped, and then the linking continued to Shem, and them to Isaac, then to Levi, them to Amram, and then to Moses. This is only a total of seven men - seven! Isn't it astounding to realize that the events in the Garden of Eden could have passed among only seven humans, in order to reach the mind of Moses, who then put the information into the Scriptural account. No wonder he could be so detailed and accurate. It's hard for us to conceive, since we are short-lived compared to these men.
Here's a spot on the timeline showing the change of the Roman Republic as it disintegrated into a chaos of empire.
This is the last page. Note how packed the lines have become, how complicated our political world has grown. The page on the right covers only 1750 to the present. I'm sad to say that, this year in history, Julia is studying 1600-1850. Next year we'll spend the whole year on 1850-present. What a lot of time we spend on recent history, and what a lot of history on this chart is never, ever studied by students at all!!
