GERONIMO (THIRD FROM LEFT) SURRENDERING TO
GENERAL NELSON MILES IN ARIZONA.


On September 4, 1886, Apache leader Geronimo surrendered to
U.S. government troops. For 30 years, the Native American warrior
had battled to protect his tribe’s homeland; however, by 1886 the Apaches were exhausted and outnumbered. General Nelson Miles accepted Geronimo’s surrender, making him the last Native
American warrior to formally give in to U.S. forces and signaling
the end of the
Indian Wars in the Southwest.

The Great Fire of London was a major conflagration that swept
through the central parts of
London from Sunday, 2 September
to Thursday, 6 September 1666. The fire gutted the medieval
City of London inside the old Roman city wall. The death toll is
generally thought to have been relatively small, although some
historians have challenged this belief.

The fire started in a bakery shortly after midnight on Sunday, 2 September, and spread rapidly.

THE SURRENDER AT PORT ARTHUR IN 1905

See the source image

During the Russo-Japanese War, Port Arthur, the Russian naval
base in China, fell to Japanese naval forces under Admiral
Heihachiro Togo. It was the first in a series of defeats that by
June turned the tide of the imperial conflict irrevocably against
Russia.

In February 1904, following a Russian rejection of a Japanese plan
to divide Manchuria and Korea into spheres of influence, Japan
launched a surprise naval attack on Port Arthur, decimating the
Russian fleet. In the subsequent fighting, Japan won a series of
decisive victories over the Russians, who underestimated the
military potential of its non-Western opponent.
