Talking Numbers and History!

Hello, this is a game I just made up a few moments ago.

Mechanics is simple.

Give a historical trivia from the above-post's year (you have the freedom to use real-life history or a made-up one, just mention if they are either).

Then you either add or subtract one from any digit in the year, or add / delete one digit from the year given (Adding only for three-digit years).

Example and game starter,

The given year was 1986.

From the example, you can have either:

Subtract one,
0986, 1886, 1976, 1985

Add one,
2986, 2086, 1996, 1987,

Or delete one digit.
186, 196, or 198.

Quote:
1986: The People Power Revolution in the Philippines was a successful and non-violent protest [REAL-LIFE].

1886.
Inspired by The "Change One Letter" game. (The game is in its sixth iteration at the time of posting)

I'm not sure how you gained 1718 from 817 XD Oh well I'll give two:

1718: France declares war on Spain. (real)

1817 (similarly-gained year, using the rules) : Mississippi admitted as twentieth US state (real)

Here are two choices, dear players:

171 or 1917.
