In the formulas for the Dates of American Battles, the month, day of the month, and year, are all represented. Each month is known by a number; January is number 1, February, 2, March, 3, April, 4, May, 5, June, 6, July, 7, August, 8, September, 9, October, 10, November, 11, and December, 12.
The Mnemotechnic Phrase stands first for the figure or figures that represent the number of the month: the next two articulations are for the day of the month, and the final two articulations represent the last two figures in the year; the judgment of the student deciding whether the Battle. took place between the years 1700 and 1800, or since the year 1800. The student will observe that if the last two articulations in the formula stand for more than fifty, the number 17 must be prefixed, to make the date complete; and if the last two figures are less than fifty, the number 18 must be prefixed.
Whenever a Phrase represents first a cipher, and next a figure 1, the learner will see that the month represented is January; but if the first articulation stands for a figure 1, then two articulations are to be taken for the month, which will show the month to be the 10th., 11th., or 12fth., or October, November or December.
