Thomas F. Sleete was awarded in 2005 the Michigan Gilder-Lehrman History Teacher of the Year.
“An American Chronicle, by Glyn E. German, is just what the doctor ordered for students of American History. Two of the greatest weaknesses of students with regard to this subject matter are chronological reasoning and knowledge of the context of the times being assessed when answering examination questions. This book provides a wealth of information, is chronologically organized, and does so in clear concise prose that is both accurate and interesting. Students, and even teachers, will be able to gun a great understanding of events, people, and processes due to the fact that they will understand when, and why, they happened. A treasure trove to enhance the study of American History I highly recommend this comprehensive volume.”
