Is a date a noun? For example, "In December 1914..." I know December is a noun, but is 1914 as well?

No, it is not a noun because 1914 is a number, even thought it does represent a specific date.


A noun is a person, place, or thing. That only includes words, not numbers. December would also be a proper noun because it is a specific thing, which is why it is capitalized.
