||Name/Title of Event
||Annotation (explanation/summary detailing why the event is important)
4. Include a minimum of 20 dates and events that are most vital to understanding the theme of your choice.
5. Briefly annotate each event using no more than three sentences.
6. Be sure to use APA citations for all references used to develop the annotated timeline.
7. Upload your Annotated Timeline in the submission.
