A historical moment can last up to an hour and a half.
If it is longer it is a date.
A historical period concerns quite a lot of people.
An era concerns almost everyone.
The difference between an event and a moment is that it strikes you and that it has consequences.
The historical event was most common during the nineteenth century.
