How to add events to the list

When you want to add an event to the list, first find the date in the listed month. Then cut and paste putting your choice events in order by year. Be sure to include a link to the page with the alternate event. Please don't include events that occurred exactly the same in our time line. However, if the event happened with different consequences, be sure to add the different history to the listing. For example, if the British colonies declare independence but fail in the attempt, the declaration should be listed with a qualifying statement stating such.
