This is an index to nodes written about the events of each year in this amazing period of history, where Feudalism, the Renaissance, and the Age of Discovery gave way to The Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution and the Age of Colonialism, and above all, war, war, war, war, war, war, and more war.

How I Made the Year Nodes is long enough to be off in its own writeup; follow the link.

But if you insist, here's a link to the year 1800.
