An event is a topic that can be described by the time or date at which it happened. Long-lasting events may be described as occurring between two dates. It is sometimes appropriate to create abstract events, as collections of other events -- like World War II, or Opposition to the Vietnam War, but use your best judgment here, as some topics are surely too abstract to be considered a collection of events, like 'democracy'.

when it began,
when it ended. leave blank if it continues,
Where this event happened; this can be in multiple locations. When deciding which location to list, it is best to use the most specific location that makes sense. E.g., for the event "Assassination of Abraham Lincoln," the best location to use would be "Ford's Theatre;" "Washington, DC" would be okay, and "United States," while strictly accurate, would be a poorer choice. However, for an event like the the Chinese Civil War, "China" would be the best location, since the event occurred throughout China.,
