Before I Read that Regimental History

I recently purchased on Amazon.com a copy of  In the Very Thickest of the Fight: The Civil War Service Of The 78Th Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment.

I've decided that before I start reading any more than the introduction to this book, I need to make  a chronology of what is known about the military career of my ancestor who served in the 78th Illinois. A quick review of the book indicates that it's pretty much laid out chronologically and having a chronology of my ancestor's military experience for occasional reference may be a good idea.

Do you use chronologies of your family when reading various historical works?
