Chess Marches On

For my first action on About to Tripod, I moved the The March of Chess from Tripod to my own domain and added it to the index page on Chess History. My adaptation of the illustration from the inside cover of Davidson's A Short History of Chess is perhaps in retrospect a bit funky, but I've become attached to it over the years.

If you think the illustration is straightforward, it's not. Earlier this year, in Davidson's Mismatch I discovered that the years shown on the illustration are mostly wrong and don't match the information given in the book itself.
