Historical timeline feedback and suggested edits
Christopher Padgett said: Love family search, just wanted to share some feedback on the historical timeline...I received an email indicating a timeline had been created for my great grandmother. Thank you, I found this extremely insightful. There were two facts displayed on it that I thought someone may want to examine a bit more closely. The first is the Cuban Missile Crisis. That event happened between October 16-28, 1962. It showed up on my great grandmother's timeline even though she died in July that year (so she would have not experienced it). I just think it would provide clarity if the dates were added to the event. The second event was listed as Mammoth Cave is Discovered in 1926. This fact is completely inaccurate. White pioneers first discovered Mammoth Cave in the late 1790s. The cave was mined during the War of 1812 by enslaved people. One of the first guides was Stephen Bishop, an enslaved man who was owned by Franklin Gorin. I just wanted to provide this feedback as most people familiar with the history of Mammoth Cave would likely see this fact on a timeline and realize it is inaccurate the way it is presented to the user. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen...
