I don't think you can really narrow things down in this way. So let's get all parochial; 1708, the year that Abraham Darby I moved to Coalbrookdale and changed the iron industry (and ultimately everything else) forever. I spent much of my childhood near Coalbrookedale.

I say 1991 is the most important year in history.  Tongue
Agreed.  Me graduating High School was an amazing feat.

My answer is 1788 (or 1791).

480 BC was the year Themistocles truly saved the West. Without his victory at Salamis... I shudder to think of the consequences. The ideas we take for granted would be utterly destroyed, or would have taken a much different form.

"Under the rules of morality, we have no authority to force others to behave as we believe they should, and force American citizens to pay for it, not only with dollars, but with life and limb as well.  By the rules of common sense, the role of world policemen is a dangerous game and not worth playing."  -- Congressman Ron Paul
