Excerpt from The Derby Anniversary Calendar (Perpetual): Being the Records of Six Thousand Noteworthy Events, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Etc;, In American History; Arranged Chronologically, With a Convenient Reference to the Sources of the Information The Derby Calendar has been compiled to present, day by day. the important events in United States history that have occurred on each day in the year, the object in view being a collection of anniversaries, rather than a strictly chronological record. All previous compilations of dates have separated the events by years so that to be able to find what transpired on January 1st, for instance, it is necessary to search for that date under every year for nearly three centuries. The Derby Calendar was compiled from The National Cyclopedia of American Biography, a work prepared upon original lines, and with such carefulness and accuracy as to be pronounced official. In view of the great prevalence of incorrect dates in works of reference, and realizing that the value of any such work is in proportion to its accuracy, every effort has been made to systematically verify all historical dates and birthdays, and while it was not possible to find the gravestones, the family Bibles, and the vital statistics in every instance, it is believed that the records here presented are absolutely without error. To insure their being entirely so, the publishers have made the offer for the discovery of an inaccuracy set forth on the following page. The Derby Calendar will be found to be particularly useful for schools, not only in assisting the pupil's memory by the association of events, but, also, in furnishing daily subjects for study, discussion and celebration appropriate to the occasion.
