1590 The Sultan of Morocco launches a successful attack to capture Timbuktu.

1644 The Ming Chongzhen emperor commits suicide by hanging himself.

1859 At Port Said, Egypt, ground is broken for the Suez Canal, an artificial waterway intended to stretch 101 miles across the isthmus of Suez and connect the Mediterranean and the Red seas. Ferdinand de Lesseps, the French diplomat who organized the colossal undertaking, delivered the pickax blow that inaugurated construction.

1864 After facing defeat in the Red River Campaign, Union General Nathaniel Bank returns to Alexandria, Louisiana.
1882 French commander Henri Riviere seizes the citadel of Hanoi in Indochina.

1898 [further to Admiral's post] the United States formally declared war against Spain. The Monroe Doctrine, which since 1823 had viewed any European intervention in the Americas as a threat to U.S. security, coupled with the sinking of the U.S.S. Maine in Havana harbor precipitated U.S. engagement. Coverage by both the Hearst newspapers and the nascent film industry solidified public support for involvement in Cuba's struggle for independence.

1915 The situation in the Canadian sector of the Ypres Salient is desperate. Surrounded on 3 sides, the Canadians effect an orderly retreat up Gravensafel Ridge, turning about at its crest to deliver a devastating volley of rapid fire into their German pursuers.

1915 VC won by Capt Francis Alexander Caron Scrimger, Canadian Army Medical Corps attached to the 14th Battalion, CEF, Ypres, France.

1920 Iraq was placed under British mandate.

1945 [further to Admiral's post] In western Holland, Canadian troops begin the assault on the perimeter defences of Delfzijl. While the Canadians encounter stiff resistance at the start of this battle, Russian and American troops join up at Torgau - eight Russian armies completely encircle Berlin - effectively splitting Hitler's Third Reich in two.

1951 After a three day fight against Chinese Communist Forces, the Gloucestershire Regiment is annihilated on "Gloucester Hill," in Korea.

1951 The PPCLI relieved at Kapyong.

1956 Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel" goes to number one on the charts :-)

1960 The first submerged circumnavigation of the Earth is completed by a Triton submarine.

1962 A U.S. Ranger spacecraft crash lands on the Moon.

1964 Johnson announces appointment of Westmoreland. President Lyndon B. Johnson announces that Gen. William Westmoreland will replace Gen. Paul Harkins as head of U.S. Military Assistance Command Vietnam (MACV) as of June 20. The assignment would put Westmoreland in charge of all American military forces in Vietnam. One of the war's most controversial figures, General Westmoreland was given many honors when the fighting was going well, but when the war turned sour, many Americans saw him as a cause of U.S. problems in Vietnam.

1972 North Vietnamese Army close to cutting South Vietnam in two. Hanoi's 320th Division drives 5,000 South Vietnamese troops into retreat and traps about 2,500 others in a border outpost northwest of Kontum in the Central Highlands. This was part of the ongoing North Vietnamese Nguyen Hue Offensive, also known as the "Easter Offensive," which included an invasion by 120,000 North Vietnamese troops.

1980 President Jimmy Carter tells the American people about the hostage rescue disaster in Iran. A commando mission to rescue hostages was aborted after mechanical problems disabled three of the eight helicopters involved. During the evacuation, a helicopter and a transport plan collided and exploded. Eight U.S. servicemen were killed. The mission was aimed at freeing American hostages that had been taken at the U.S. embassy in Tehran on November 4, 1979. The event took place April 24th Washington, DC, time.

Australian

1901 Naval contingent return to Sydney from China Sailors from New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria were sent to China to assist in quelling an anti-western rebellion by Chinese secret societies. They arrived too late to see any significant fighting. The Australian colonial force suffered only 6 fatalities, none from combat.

1915 Landings at Gallipoli British, French and Australian troops were involved in the landings. Although the Gallipoli campaign was a military failure, the anniversary of the landing has become a national day of commemoration in Australia.

1916 First commemoration of ANZAC Day - the first anniversary of the Gallipoli landings was widely observed in Australia. Large crowds attended church services and public ceremonies . The day was also commemorated by Australian and New Zealand servicemen in Egypt and London.

1918 Fighting around Villers-Bretonneux When the Germans captured the town that had been the centre of fighting just 3 weeks previously Australian and British troops drove them out in a daring night time attack at a cost of 1,469 casualties.

1918 Lt Clifford Sadlier, 51 Bn, awarded the VC for his actions at Villers-Bretonnuex, France.
