While reading through my writing, I noticed that I wrote: "During the events of yesterday..." because it fit the narrative. The phrase, however, made me wonder whether it's correct. When I googled the words "the events of yesterday", all I found was an article dating back to the 1860s, in New York Times that used this exact phrase. The modern term seems to just be: "During yesterday's events".
My question is then, as asked in the title, while perhaps a bit old-fashioned, is it still grammatically correct in modern English to use the words: "During the events of yesterday"? – or has it completely fallen out of use?
