  1. Score means twenty, so your title literally means one hundred years ago.

    Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address begins “Four score and seven years ago our fore fathers…” because he was referring the Declaration of Independence which had been writtin 87 years before (four score seven).

    So if you mean it to say one hundred years you could change it to say one century ago, or five score years. But if you mean it to say twenty years ago and didn’t know that score meant anything, you could simple rewrite it “One Score Years Ago”.

    Either way I do not see what the title has to do with the post.

    Best Wishes
