David and Joe thanks for the compliment.  I think most of the choices are good.  I  like the choice of  the Indians getting the horse as another good choice although it seems the list starts with the coming of the white man to America. 

Maybe the problem is there are not just 10 most important.  That all the events we have listed are important . It would be a different place without any one of them.   We are the country we are today because all of these events took place. 

I watched the Greatest American with a friend as they counted down to the top five.  It was a peoples choice type vote.  I was embarassed the low ranking some of the greatest thinkers and leaders of our country received .  The actors, and musicians and recent politicians were ranked higher than they were.
