Top 10 Sites for Creating Timelines

"A timeline is a kind of graphic design showing a long bar labeled with dates alongside itself and (usually) events labeled on points where they would have happened. It is used to show events along a period of time, and are often used in education to help students and researchers with understanding events and trends for a particular subject." (Wikipedia)
