Are these sentences correct:

1) That he should acknowledge that he has made a mistake will mark a moment in history.


2) For him to acknowledge that he has made a mistake will mark a moment in history.



Gratefully,

Both are correct and say the same thing, but the first one is more akin to older style English. The second one is more modern.
