Remember February 22, 2011? Not really, no. Nothing much happened that day except that was the day that Minecraft Beta 1.3 dropped. A little buggy, sure. But for many it was after this point that Minecraft started to not be Minecraft. Later versions strayed away from the simpler, creative game and towards a more RPG style game centered on combat.
Now around eight years later, nostalgia has driven us to go Back to the Beta.
Mojang have provided a lot of old versions in their official launcher, BUT none of the classic, alpha or beta versions can be played in multiplayer.
Monotonehell decided he liked Beta 1.3 the most out of all the beta versions, so he has made a mod for that version that imports current authentication, skins and even capes if you have one into Beta 1.3 so we can all play online without need for offline auth plugins.
First you need MultiMC. It makes installing the mods easy.

monosoho was one of Australia's biggest Minecraft servers, created by monotonehell (often shortened to 'mono'). Thousands of people mined and crafted on the same map from December of 2010 until June 2015.
The old monosoho rules still apply...
