    1. independence - us becomes independant. that's huge obvously.
    2. civil war - us was on the road to splitting apart, but civil war stopped south from leaving.
    3. world war 2 - the A bomb invented during or after this (can't remember) and that broguht the us into power, oon to become the world super power.

    i can't really thing of any reasons why other events are important so i'll just leave them out.

    Don't forget about emacipation, two world wars, Pearl Harbor, transcontinental railroad, war of 1812, reconstruction was just as influential as the civil war, stock market crash, great depression, cold war. There are sooo many important events.

    Moon landing maybe too?

    I'm too tired for explanations. Too much typing. If you know your history, these won't need explanations.

    1. WWI - first major major involvement in war in a global sense
    2. Pearl Harbor - first major attack on US soil; changed our involvement in other countries forever.
    3. 9/11 - largest attack on our mainland, further changed our foreign policy
    4. Independence - kicked the British to the curb, birth of the USA
    5. Civil War - threatened our current unification

    These aren't in any order...

    1. The Great Depression - Millions out of work, but changed due to the War
    2. World War 2 - Good vs Evil
    3. Pearl Harbor - Attacked by Empire Of Japan. Brought them into the War.
    4. Civil War - Many lives lost, but united the people eventually.
    5. Slavery Abolished - See "iamtheoneandonlyone"'s post. Also KKK is something to research.
    6. Cuban Missile Crisis - Cold War at it's peak.
    7. Moon Landing - Tremendous achievment
    8. Independance - We got beaten up - Good friends now though
    9. 9/11 - Worst terrorist attack in history.
    10. Vietnam - I think you all know about this one... Also look into how people treated the GI's when they returned

    Can't think of any more right now... Gulf War perhaps, Bill Clinton's "I did not have sexual relations" speech is an event itself lol - good luck
