Hi there! Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Historical events are important to this day because they allow us to better analyze and plan for the future, while avoiding previous mistakes. Many historical events have serious consequences; one example in our daily lives is that due to the historical event that took place on September 11, 2001, now we have increased security measures in airports. This is just a simple example. We are constantly using historical events to try to prepare ourselves for current situations. Other examples include the suffrage movement in the United States. Whereas now it is common to see women and minorities voting, it was not so in the late 1800s, and early 1900s. These movements have led to the creation of activist groups, fighting for the rights of other groups. In general, history can teach, influence, and shape the present.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. Always glad to help!
