Event table notes

Event data
Place: London
Start date: Mar. 1864
End date: Apr. 1864
 
Notes:
The Era of 27 Mar. 1864 (p.14) gives a partial result to date of +3-1=0 for Steinitz, so I presume the match started in Mar. 1864. The 10 Apr. 1864 issue (p.5) says it was finished, so I presume it ended at the beginning of Apr. 1864.
