I am trying to name a timeline of the American Revolution. The title has to be clever. I was thinking something like " Baby steps to America's Independence " but that was one of the examples soo... I need another way to say it......

  • You could reword the title and use "Evolving" – AHuman Jan 11 '16 at 4:47

    How about "Slouching Toward Philadelphia to Be Born"? – Sven Yargs Jan 11 '16 at 5:51

    Vote to close it as there is neither example sentence nor any context. General reference and a request for naming something. – user140086 Jun 15 '16 at 4:35

How about 'inching'?

intr. & tr.v. inched, inch·ing, inch·es
To move or cause to move slowly or by small degrees: inching along through stalled traffic; inched the chair forward.

Inching toward Independence: America's Infancy

The In- In- In- resonance of 'inching', 'independence' and 'infancy' is a bonus 'cleverness'.


You could consider ventures

(plural noun) a risky or daring journey or undertaking

[Google Definition]

Merriam Webster defines the verb form as to start to do something new or different that usually involves risk

You could perhaps title it as "Pioneering Ventures into America's Independence"

(My usage is only a slight modification of the example given alongside Google's definition)
