by Carl Waldman and Chris Campbell

The Sharon Springs Timeline: A Microcosm of American History, with Dates Relating to a Remarkable Village and Neighboring Regions, from the 16th Century to Modern Times, is a chronology ranging from the 1500s to the present. It provides a helpful overview of the history of the Sharon Springs region of upstate New York and of American history in general. It covers wide-ranging subject matter organized in relation to Settlement and Demarcation; Politics and Warfare; Technology and Transportation; Historic Businesses and Buildings; and Education, Arts, and Entertainment. As stated in the Authors’ Note: “The Village of Sharon Springs is remarkable in its widely varied degree of economic ebb and flow and diversity of people. Understanding its complex history – and that of surrounding regions – helps one understand the history of an entire nation.”
