Product Overview

In typical historical publications, timelines of specific events are usually limited to year, date, and sometimes day of the week. What is never revealed is the time of the day these events occurred. What Time of Day Was That? answers that question. Discover the exact time of day for many historical events including: the first transatlantic TV transmission; Columbus's discovery of the New World; the sinking of the Titanic; the Great train Robbery; the birth of the Dionne quintuplets; the first nuclear bomb test; the Halifax harbour explosion; the assassination of Julius Caesar; the Charge of the Light Brigade; the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II; the start of Hurricane Hazel; and much, much more. More than 1,000 achievements, disasters, historical firsts, sporting successes, and other events are profiled in this book. Divided into 24 chapters - one for each hour of the day - trivia lovers will delight in the "time-ly" discoveries they will make about a vast array of historical material.
