The crossing of the Delaware River by George Washington and his men was a dramatic moment in the Revolutionary War.
This engraving depicts the execution of King Louis XVI, a critical moment of the French Revolution. The American Revolution took place between 1763-1783 and resulted in American independence from Great Britain. The French Revolution, between 1789-1799, resulted in the overthrow of King Louis XVI and the establishment of the First French Republic.
The Revolutions of 1830 resulted in the establishment of the independent kingdom of Belgium, and in France, the overthrow of King Charles X and the ascension of King Louis-Philippe. The Revolutions of 1848 consisted of simultaneous democratic revolts against the conservative governments of Europe.

Lo, Monschau, Ardennes, Roer River, Rhine River, Ruhr Pocket, Harz Mountains, Mulde River)The 9th Infantry Division saw its first combat in the North African invasion, 8 November 1942, when its elements landed at Algiers, Safi, and Port Lyautey. We will highlight the major revolutions and developments that took place during this time, and see how they impacted the course of modern history. The Age of Revolution took place between 1763-1848, and was characterized by major revolutions (mostly in Europe and America) that profoundly impacted the course of modern history. A part of the broader American Revolution, the Revolutionary War was fought between 1775-1783, resulting in an American victory.
All the hoopla that Shepherd has caused with her letter is nothing more than a bad move in the game of pressure groups in the Netherlands," he told the Algemeen Dagblad newspaper. With the collapse of French resistance, 11 November 1942, the Division patrolled the Spanish Moroccan border.
He is an adjunct history professor, former middle school history teacher, and freelance writer.
The Revolutions of 1848 were largely uncoordinated, but consisted of simultaneous democratic revolts against the conservative governments of Europe. The 9th returned to Tunisia in February and engaged in small defensive actions and patrol activity.
The French Revolution (1789-1799) resulted in the overthrow of King Louis XVI (and his execution) and the establishment of the First French Republic. If the International Monetary Fund (IMF) was included, the fund would rank 3rd, pushing the Central Bank of Russia into the 7th place spot. On 28 March 1943 it launched an attack in southern Tunisia and fought its way north into Bizerte, 7 May.
During this period major revolutions broke out that would alter the course of modern history. Heavy taxes, bread shortages, and popular dissatisfaction with the monarchy caused French peasants and commoners to rise up against their government. The Revolutions of 1848 are generally considered a short-term failure, but a long-term success. In August the 9th landed at Palermo, Sicily, and took part in the capture of Randazzo and Messina.
In most cases, the revolutions were suppressed and conservative governments were able to hang on to power. Of note, China, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Belarus—all nations in economic peril who are searching for stability—have also been adding to their gold holdings (among others) as a way to bolster their reserve assets and avoid becoming overleveraged with foreign currencies. After returning to England for further training, the Division hit Utah Beach on 10 June 1944 (D plus 4) , cut off the Cotentin Peninsula, drove on to Cherbourg and penetratedthe port's heavy defenses.
In time, the revolution spiraled out of control as radicals unleashed the 'reign of terror' in which anti-revolutionaries were executed by guillotine.
However, the Revolutions of 1848 helped pave the way for the creation of modern nation-states like Germany and Italy. King Louis XVI and his wife, Marie Antoinette, were among those who met their fate at the guillotine.
For this reason, the Revolutions of 1848 are often regarded as the 'Spring of Nations.' In addition to classical liberalism, nationalism was driving force of the Revolutions of 1848.

The French Revolution ushered in a decade of chaos that only came to an end in 1799 when Napoleon Bonaparte seized power. Near the end of 2014, the ruble was absolutely tanking against the dollar, sliding just short of all-time lows.In such scenarios, it makes sense to turn to gold, just as China has done in support of the yuan.
Turning east, the 9th crossed the Marne, 28 August, swept through Saarlautern, and in November and December held defensive positions from Monschau to Losheim. For example, the term is most often associated with European history, and in this context, the Age of Revolution is usually considered as beginning in 1789 with the French Revolution.
Russia increased its gold reserves by 24 metric tonnes in June and another 13 tonnes in July, consistently stacking more and more of the metal as investors elsewhere soured on gold as a “dead asset” or “pet rock.”Although the central bank’s efforts have not have especially profound effects on the Russian currency, the ruble’s tumble against its peers has certain ramifications for the country’s domestic gold market. Moving north to Bergrath, Germany, it launched an attack toward the Roer, 10 December, taking Echtz and Schlich. But if we want to include the American Revolution in the mix, we have to go back to at least 1775, but more accurately to 1763. From mid-December through January 1945, the Division held defensive positions from Kalterherberg to Elsenborn. See, the American Revolution was not the same thing as the Revolutionary War; the American Revolution was a broader social and political movement that began in 1763 following the French and Indian War. On 30 Jannary the Division jumped off from Monschau in a drive across the Roer and to Rhine, crossing at Remagen, 7 March. After breaking out of the Remagen bridgehead, the 9th assisted in the sealing and clearing of the Ruhr Pocket, then moved 150 miles east to Nordhausen and attacked in the Harz Mountains, 14-20 April.
It's worth mentioning that revolutions during this time wasn't just isolated to Europe and America. Roosevelt announced Operation Torch to the people of southern Europe and North Africa on the morning of Sunday, November 8, 1942:"Mes Amis, We come among you to repulse the cruel invaders -- have faith in our words -- help us where you are able.
Latin America saw widespread revolution in which many colonies fought wars of independence from their European masters. However, again, the term 'Age of Revolution' mainly nuances the revolutionary character of Europe during this time. The American Revolution took place between 1763-1783, and it resulted in American independence from Great Britain and the creation of the United States of America. Colonists in this area became disgruntled over British tax policies, and insisted their 'rights' as Englishmen were being violated. Led by elite landowners, such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, the revolution turned violent when war broke out in 1775. The American colonists won the Revolutionary War (1775-1783) thereby securing independence and establishing the American Republic. Primarily this would be the 9th Infantry Division, 60th Infantry Regiment "Go Devils".Prior to the landings in French Morocco, and after the fall of France in World War II, the US State Department had maintained in French North Africa an unusually large number of very able consular officials. From these sources and from the military attache in Tangiers, the US Army obtained much detailed information concerning conditions in Morocco and were placed in contact with loyal Frenchmen who opposed the Vichy regime and were not friendly towards Axis forces. In 1956 Tunisia gained independence from France.  However, the French did not want to concede control of Bizerte at all given the excellent location and the sizable military installations that had been built over the years. Additionally France was involved in a nasty conflict in Algeria and Bizerte was part of the support plans.
Using state of the art weapons and decisive force the French took Bizerte and Menzel Bourguiba, resulting in the loss of life during the three days of 700 Tunisians (1200 wounded) and 24 French (100 wounded).
The world was shocked at the severity of the attack and following meetings at the UN security council along with international pressure on France agreement was reached and the French presence was ended on the 15th october 1963.Randazzo and MessinaRandazzo is a town and comune of Sicily, Italy, in the province of Catania. It is the nearest town to the summit of Etna, and is one of the points from which the ascent may be made. During World War II, Randazzo became a victim of Allied bombings, during which about 76% of its buildings were destroyed or damaged.Messina , is located in the northeast of Sicily, Italy, on the Strait of Messina, opposite the Italian mainland. In World War II, the Sicilian campaign ended with the fall of Messina to the Allies on August 17, 1943. Utah Beach, Coutentin Peninsula and Port of CherbourgUtah Beach was the furthest west of the five beaches designated for the D-Day landings in June 1944. Located at the base of the Cotentin Peninsula, it was added by General Dwight Eisenhower to the original D-Day plan to ensure the early capture of the vital port of Cherbourg, at the north of the peninsula. Eisenhower realised that the Allied advance throughout Western Europe would require vast amounts of equipment and that the only major port that could handle this in the initial stages of the war was at Cherbourg. Much of it was made up of sandy dunes and the German fortifications here were weak when compared those of Omaha Beach.
The land behind the target beach was easily flooded by locks and it is assumed that the Germans believed that the area need not have too much defence as their main defence would be to flood the region when and if the Allies attacked there. There were only four main ways off the beach area and flooding would have severely restricted any form of movement, but especially that of vehicles.
Through Carentan ran a main road to the east to Bayeaux, which would link the Allies who landed at Utah to the Allies at Omaha and to Gold, Juno and Sword. The landing at Utah was scheduled for 06.30 and the Allied force came from the US 4th Infantry Division.

The plan for Utah included an airborne drop by the US 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions at various points two to five miles inland of the beach. Those landing on the beach were scheduled to link up with the paratroopers as soon as was possible. The paratroopers were dropped primarily to secure the main road from Valognes to Carentan and to cause general chaos as they dropped at night at 01.30. German commanders did not know if they were a decoy to a main attack elsewhere or the primary attack force in the area. For this reason, the Germans did not know what forces to deploy against the 82nd and 101st  - such chaos and uncertainty was perfect for the Allies and precisely why the paratroopers were dropped. The sea borne landing did not go to plan – though ironically, a battle against Nature was to be of great value to the Allies. Strong currents meant that the landing craft were taken off of their intended targets on the beach. Ironically, this was one of the lesser-defended areas along the entire beach front and the casualties as the Americans came ashore were minimal when compared to Omaha. The most senior American commander on the beach, Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt told his men that, “We’ll start the war from here!” and ordered an advance.
By midday, the men of the US 4th Infantry had met up with the men from the 101st Airborne unit.
By the end of the day, the Americans had advanced about four miles inland and they were about one mile from the 82nd at St. On the first full day of the landing at Utah, 20,000 men had been landed and 1,700 military vehicles.
Being a strategic crossroads, Saint-Lo was almost totally destroyed (95% according to common estimates) during the Battle of Normandy in World War II, earning the title of "The Capital of the Ruins" from Samuel Beckett; it was even questioned whether to rebuild it or to leave the ruins intact as a testimony to the bombing. Lo was one of the key cities to the opening of the Falaise Gap, ultimately allowing the Allies to expel the Nazis from northern France. Monschau and the Ardennes Mountain RangeMonschau is a town in the western portion of Germany.
The town is located in the hills of the Eifel, within the Hohes Venn – Eifel Nature Park in the narrow valley of the Rur river. The historic town center was not destroyed during World War II, thus the many half-timbered houses and narrow streets have remained nearly unchanged for 300 yearsThe Battle of the Bulge (also known as the Ardennes Offensive and the Von Rundstedt Offensive) (16 December 1944 – 25 January 1945) was a major German offensive, launched toward the end of World War II through the densely forested Ardennes Mountains region of Wallonia in Belgium. Army, but it is known to the English-speaking general public simply as the Battle of the Bulge, the "bulge" being the initial incursion the Germans put into the Allies' line of advance. North of the Ruhr on March 23, 1945, Field Marshal Montgomery's British 21st Army Group launched Operation Plunder and crossed the Rhine at Rees and Wesel.
In the south, the First Army headed northeast and formed the southern pincer of the Ruhr envelopment. Ninth Army, which since the Battle of the Bulge had been assigned to Montgomery's British 21st Army Group, headed southeast, forming the northern pincer.
Facing the Allied armies were the remnants of a shattered Wehrmacht, a few SS training units, and large numbers Volkssturm (militia units for aging men, including some World War I veterans) and Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth) units, composed of boys as young as 12.
By April 4, the encirclement was completed and the Ninth Army reverted to the command of Bradley's 12th Army Group. Within the Ruhr Pocket about 430,000 German soldiers of Army Group B, which was 21 divisions of the Wehrmacht, and millions of civilians were trapped in cities heavily damaged by numerous bombings.
While the main operations headed further toward central and northern Germany, US forces concentrated on the pocket, taking it section by section. On April 12, 1945, the US First and Ninth armies divided the area coming from the south; the smaller, eastern part surrendered the next day.
Rather than surrender and violate his personal oath to Adolf Hitler that he would fight to the death, the commander, Field Marshal Walter Model, committed suicide in a forest south of the city of Duisburg. The surviving 325,000 German soldiers from the Ruhr Pocket, and some civilians, were imprisoned in the Rheinwiesenlager. The Harz Mountain AreaDuring the Nazi era, the Harz became an important area for the armaments industry.
Many factories, important to the war effort, were located here and, as the war neared its conclusion, they were increasingly staffed with forced labour. As a result, the Harz was the location of several hundred forced labour camps and KZs at that time. In the last weeks of the Second World War, the so-called Harz Fortress (Harzfestung) is worth mentioning. Amongst the formations mobilised were divisions belonging to the 11th Army, divisions of the Waffen SS and the Volkssturm. Army reached Nordhausen in the southern Harz, and went to advance northwards, it met with resistance, especially in the hills around the towns of Ilfeld and Ellrich.
