Memorization of dates is useless outside of putting events into a working timeline. Significance of the event itself is much more valuable.
No "memorization" is necessary. You read it, you remember it. That's how the human mind works.
Unless you didn't read it, in which case you failed at what your society paid endless amounts of money for and you should be cast out for your ingratitude.
