Gigi of the Well-Trained Mind boards compiled this table showing which timeline figures are available for the chapters of SOTW-3. Thank you, Gigi, for letting me post it here.

Note: HTTA is the History Through the Ages CD-Rom. SL are the Sonlight Timeline Figures for Cores 6 & 7. They use SOTW and are also drawn by Amy Pak. Feel free to send me any corrections. I added a few extra timeline figures for American History and did not date every individual. Finally r = ruled.
