View Full Version : History anniversaries

07-07-2005, 05:11 PM
I'm looking for a site that shows famous (or not-so-famous) historic anniversaries for future years. I found one site that has a few things for a couple more years, but I need more.

My goal is to see what's coming up in the next 5 years or more and write articles and possibly books (childrens) on that subject to coincide with the anniversary. Thus, it would need to be at least 5 years out (for books.)

I don't want a general site where I have to look at every date and figure out when the anniversary is. This site should list things like "100th anniversary in 2010."

Is there any such thing?

These are a few that I've found already: http://www2.lib.udel.edu/subj/hist/resguide/histevents/

Thanks. I'll have to look through those when I want to "procrastinate with a purpose."

Here's another useful site: www.ideas4writers.co.uk/date-a-base.htm (http://www.ideas4writers.co.uk/date-a-base.htm)
it lists historic events in the UK and worldwide.

www.timetravel-britain.com (http://www.timetravel-britain.com) also covers historic events happening in the UK in the current or forthcoming month.

www.foodreference.com/html/historicevents.html (http://www.foodreference.com/html/historicevents.html)
lists historic events related to food.

www.scopesys.com/anyday (http://www.scopesys.com/anyday) lists historic events day by day for the world. Finally, www.historictraveler.away.com/primedia/calendar_1.adp (http://www.historictraveler.away.com/primedia/calendar_1.adp) lists historic events too.

Hope this is useful,

Thanks. Can't wait to get time (tomorrow hopefully) to look through all the links.
