That, together with 2 world wars and a great depression. Though lots of countries had those problems of course.

Of course some Aussies would say 1788-2017.

Same with some New Zealanders as well 1840 - 2017.

Australia also played a key role in defeating the Axis powers in WW2 so that is debatable.

Well Germany and Japan have a bigger case for WW2 if they could erase a period of that period of history then compared to Australia.

If there was one historical event that the USA would erase, probably the Great Depression.
If there was one military campaign that the USA would rather never happened, Vietnam, followed by the War of 1812.
War of 1812 was far worse for its time than Vietnam. British troops invaded the upper Midwest including capturing and holding Detroit for several years, invaded upstate New York, invaded and burned Washington DC all while part of the nation contemplated secession. (New England) had we not pulled it together we would have been ruined by that war.

From a material perspective, perhaps. But I think Vietnam carries more powerful symbolism, wherein you had a first world nation with a vast industrialized military machine being bruised and beaten back by lightly-armed peasants.

Irrespective of what actually happened in the war, that's the image people associate with the USMC's field trip to Indochina.

False. 1876-1923 years caused the Ottoman destroyed it is really good for the Turkish people. After that they founded a secular country which is called as a Republic of Turkey. Turkish people got rid of that terrible Islamic state... But today current government want to destroy secularism... Why? Because majority of Turkish people never completely liked that secularism. M. Kemal Ataturk had given it to them they never gained. (I'm Turkish btw)

The Ottoman empire from 1876-1923 was secular. It was only Islamic in name. In fact in the 19th century the Ottoman empire decriminalised homosexuality. That was well before a large majority of Western countries. Also secular schools were promoted as well as the promotion of education of females.

The Ottoman empire was an empire of Turks as it was founded by Turks.
