The Declaration of Independence is signed and the boys’ revulsion at the females’ domestication of their campsite seems genuine enough.
Aaron Burr kills one of the greatest figures in American history, Alexander Hamilton, in a duel and Jan is distressed when her first boyfriend is attracted to Marcia. She compensates by making up an imaginary boyfriend named George Glass.
Abraham Lincoln frees the slaves with the Emancipation Proclamation and Marcia gets punished for neglecting her duties, but she’s doing it in order to nominate Mike for Father of the Year in a newspaper contest.
World War I ends in victory for the Allied forces after the Germans surrender and Mike has to deal with a smothering female client with outrageous demands.
A massive drop in the stock market helps trigger the Great Depression, which lasts until the increased economic activity spurred by World War II gets America going back in the right direction, and Greg is furious that Marcia is dating his football rival—he responds by pursuing the girl who beat her out for head cheerleader.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlaws discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin and Jan receives a locket in the mail anonymously, and then it disappears as mysteriously as it arrived. Carol and Alice break into Mike’s office to see if the note came from his typewriter.
