I used OurTimelines to generate the original timeline for this. While it's an interesting tool, the timeline produced was too unwieldy to include in a post as html and blogger was having problems saving it. It was also way too big to create a graphic from a single screenshot. I wound up saving the printable version as text and then ran it through a couple of the tools at TextFixer.com to remove extra characters. I'm sure there's an easier way to do this, so I'm curious to see what others came up with!
