comment Why are dates and locations important in History?
Question is based on an unfounded and unprovable assumption (that courses spend time teaching dates), followed by an explicit assertion of opinion "in my opinion....", and finishes with an unanswerable, incommensurate request for opinion "Am I underestimating....". OP hasn't provided an estimate, merely an opinion. This is a request for a discussion, not a question. The answer is "yes". Furthermore, the question cannot be answered by historical research.
