Old Style Date – Because of the period of adjustment between the Julian and Gregorian Calendars, different countries used different dating systems.  Some countries had adopted the Gregorian system much sooner than others, and so there are multiple dates for this period of time (1700 – 1750), depending on location. See also Gregorian Calendar and Julian Calendar.
