    memorable

    Dear teachers,
    Could you tell me whether it is natural in English to say that:
    The revolution took place in the memorable year of 1789.

    or is it just a calque from Polish?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi!

    I'm not a teacher.

    I'd say 'momentous'; it seems to sound more natural.
