Year 1900 (MCM) began on a Monday and was not a leap year as a result of the second finest adjustment of the Gregorian calendar where leap years are eliminated in centennial years (Source: The Discoverers, Boorstin, page 9) and a leap year starting on Saturday of the Julian calendar. As a result, the Julian calendar was 12 days behind the Gregorian until Wednesday, February 28 (O.S. February 16) and has been 13 days behind since Thursday, March 1 (O.S. February 17). It was the 1900th year of the Anno Domini or the Common Era designation, the 900th year of the 2nd millennium, the last year of the 19th century and the first year of the 1900s.
