The Seven Dates in History You Must Know
In college, I read a book called, 1066 and All That, that made reference to "the seven dates in history you must know." The idea intrigued me enough that I try to keep my expectations to memorize dates to a minimum.
Here are the Seven Dates in History You Must Know!
- 476 The Fall of Rome
- 732 The Battle of Tours

- 1347 The Black Death
- 1455 The Gutenberg Bible
- 1492 Columbus Discovers America
- 1517 The 95 Theses

Are there more than seven? Sshh! Don't tell!
