Each stopping point is a birds-eye view of a moment in time: Hear the Great Sun call out to his people at Cahokia, ride with General Benedict Arnold at Saratoga, step out of a sedan chair at Independence Hall, and join the Fergusons as they move into the city as new as tomorrow.”

Baker & Taylor
Describes twenty sites that have helped shape America's history, from Saratoga and Gettysburg to Philadelphia and Ellis Island, and explains their significance.
