We demonstrate that accurate SFHs can be recovered from CMDs that do not reach the oldest main sequence turn-off (MSTO), but emphasize that the oldest MSTO is critical for precisely constraining the earliest epochs of star formation. We find that: (1) the average lifetime SFHs of dwarf spheroidals (dSphs) can be approximated by an exponentially declining SFH with τ ∼ 5 Gyr; (2) lower luminosity dSphs are less likely to have extended SFHs than more luminous dSphs; (3) the average SFHs of dwarf irregulars (dIrrs), transition dwarfs, and dwarf ellipticals can be approximated by the combination of an exponentially declining SFH (τ ∼ 3-4 Gyr) for lookback ages >10-12 Gyr ago and a constant SFH thereafter; (4) the observed fraction of stellar mass formed prior to z = 2 ranges considerably (80% for galaxies with M < 105 M to 30% for galaxies with M > 107 M) and is largely explained by environment; (5) the distinction between "ultra-faint" and "classical" dSphs is arbitrary; (6) LG dIrrs formed a significantly higher fraction of stellar mass prior to z = 2 than the Sloan Digital Sky Survey galaxies from Leitner and the SFHs from the abundance matching models of Behroozi et al. This may indicate higher than expected star formation efficiencies at early times in low mass galaxies. Finally, we provide all the SFHs in tabulated electronic format for use by the community. Description: For this paper, we have selected only dwarf galaxies that are located within the zero surface velocity of the LG (∼1 Mpc; e.g., van den Bergh 2000, The Galaxies of the Local Group (Cambridge: Cambridge Univ. Press) ; McConnachie 2012, J/AJ/144/4). This definition excludes some dwarfs that have been historically associated with the LG, such as GR8 and IC 5152, but which are located well beyond 1 Mpc. We have chosen to include two galaxies with WFPC2 imaging that are located on the periphery of the LG (Sex A and Sex B), because of their ambiguous association with the LG, the NGC 3109 sub-group, or perhaps neither (although see Bellazzini et al. 2013A&A...559L..11B for discussion of the possible association of these systems). We measured the SFH of each field using the maximum likelihood CMD fitting routine, MATCH (Dolphin 2002MNRAS.332...91D). Briefly, MATCH works as follows: it accepts a range of input parameters (e.g., initial mass function (IMF) slope, binary fraction, age and metallicity bin widths, etc.), uses these parameters to construct synthetic CMDs of simple stellar populations (SSPs), and then linearly combines them with a model foreground CMD to form a composite model CMD with a complex SFH. The composite model CMD is then convolved with the noise model from the artificial star tests (i.e., completeness, photometric uncertainties, and color/magnitude biases). The resulting model CMD is then compared to the observed CMD using a Poisson likelihood statistic. File Summary:

Note (1): Per field computed by integrating the SFH. Note that this quantity is not the present day stellar mass, as it does not account for stellar evolutions effects (e.g., mass loss, stellar death, etc). Note (2): By construction, the cumulative SFHs are 0 at log(t) = 10.15 and 1 at log(t) = 6.6.
