Using Rhymes To Memorize Dates
  1. Leave off the century. Example: the American Civil War in 1861 becomes 61.
  2. Think of a term that rhymes with your date. Example: 61 = Sticky gun
  3. Make sure your rhyme is a little silly and that it paints a strong picture in your head. Example: Imagine Civil War soldiers struggling with a gun that has been covered with honey.
