          Looks Great

          I think my history-nerd grandson will love this as part of his Christmas present

          Great Gift for Revolutionary War History Buffs

          I bought this Revolutionary War timeline as a Christmas gift for my grandson. The print is a little small but he has good eyes and seeing the events as they occurred is very educational. Lots of "ah ha" moments.

          Best Quality prints!

          Ordered this and John Binns "Declaration" both in a small format (running out of wall space!) They are both distinctly legible, easy to read (ok, you DO have to get close) but as "art" they fit right in!
          Lee and his whole team really care for their Customers!

          Print size is terribly small

          The timeline display is a nice concept, but it requires a magnifying glass to read it.
          I was intending to frame it, but the print is simply too small for that.
          So, I am disappointed.

          Trudy, I'm sorry you're disappointed, and I appreciate you letting us know. Our reproduction of this historical print from 1871 is close to the size of the original, and some of the type is small, unfortunately. We will refund your purchase; please keep the poster. — Lee Wright | Founder

          Dressing up a genealogy workshop

          I bought some fun stickers to dress up some boring folders full of information on genealogical research for a Daughters of the American Revolution meeting. Just exactly what I was looking for! I like the Revolutionary War timeline poster I bought too. Washington’s Route through the years is fascinating. I need a little poster frame.

          Historical timeline of the Revolutionary War Print

          Heavy Card stock, everything printed is very clear. Looks just like the original.

          I love it!

          Cool informational poster

          This is an unusual and clever informational graphic. If you are into the American Revolution, this is for you! It has the entire war on 1 page!
