This question is a bit general. Are you interested in political happenings? World events? Pop culture? Here are a few things that may get you started:

1996- Nintendo 64 is released; ValuJet crash in Florida Everglades; Michael Johnson becomes the fastest man in the world at the Summer Olympics; Bill Clinton wins his second term as President; Jon'Benet Ramsey murdered in the basement of her family home; Dolly the Sheep is the first cloned animal.

2000- Y2K millennium bug; Presidential Election Disaster!!! Confusion over which candidate won the State of Florida caused a recount that lasted for weeks; Elian Gonzalez; Hillary Clinton is elected to the United States Senate and becomes the first First Lady to be elected to public office.

2001-Terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and U.S. Pentagon; Anthrax; President George W. Bush signs the US Patriot Act into law; Enron; R&B singer Aaliyah dies in a plane crash;

2005- YouTube makes its on-line debut; Pope John Paul II dies; Lance Armstrong wins 7th straight Tour de France; The most active hurricane season in years: Dennis, Rita, Katrina, Wilma

Your dates may be looking for politial events. Bill Clinton was elected in 1996 and the courts determined that George W. Bush won the presidency in 2000. In 2001, the most significant event was 9/11. In 2005, the market began its correction.
