You wake up in a strange room. No one is there, as far as you can tell. But there are three doors, a piece of paper and a numpad, which is a standard keyboard. (this is N. O. T. a 'what door should you open' question). The piece of paper, although it is tattered and old, reads this:
Inside each door is a piece of paper with clues.
One is for the day, another for the month, the last for the year.
Find the name of the battle to get out!
You find, as stated, there are three papers in each room. One paper is marked for the day, another one for the month and the last one for the year.
Hint: It has something to do with the letters...
Most of the things in the picture are RED HERRINGS. Only a few contribute to the solution. It's your job to find those few...

Hint: The year is a four-digit number.

It's been nearly a month. Or has it? It feels like a decade. You hobble around the room for clues, then suddenly find a fresh piece of paper. It must have been put there by someone, maybe the mad scientist who trapped you. It says: "I didn't make the grid so colorful just to mess around with styling!" You think that somehow the colors are related to the answer. But you don't know HOW they're related...
Strong: "Look at that arrow. Follow it."
What is the name of the battle?
