Top 10 Historical Events of Significance

The events were selected by leading journalists and historians nationwide.  I've borrowed
the results of the list compiled by the
Freedom Forum.  They surveyed the experts as part
of an interactive millenium exhibit at their museum of news history, The Newseum, in Arlington, VA.  You will find a more comprehensive list of the
top 100 news events of the century at their website.
