Not bad but...

I enjoyed reading about the milestones for the current date. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to allow you to put in a date of your choosing and see what happened on that day. Seems very strange to me that you can't do that. I'd rate this higher if I could choose a date.

Very organized app

This app is a great reference source and it is very organized. It helps you to know what happen today in the history of the US. I have the ability to learn about historical milestones for a day like today or the next 5 days. I also can send my own milestones so the staff can review it and put it into the app. Good work!!

Date in history

Should be renamed dates in liberal history. The events posted in this app focus on legislation and events that liberalized our nation and not on our real history.
