For part of the written final, I'm supposed to memorize 100 dates from American History. The class mentor supplied half the dates and each student chooses the other half of the dates they'd like to memorize. Each student's list of 100 dates will be unique. Based on my love of books and authors, I chose a lot of book publication dates. For the curious, here is my list of 110 American History dates to memorize. When I started making my list I had about 200 dates that seemed important to me - it was tough to cut it down. I knew hardly any of these at the start of the class but I'm almost there on memorizing them all and even better, based on the books we read and discussed, these dates actually mean something to me - I know what the events were. If you were to make up a list of your own, what would it include?
