5 Momentous Military Events That Took Place On Christmas Day
Story Credit thanks Business Insider
We picked our favorites:
Christmas is one of the most celebrated holidays on earth. But that doesn’t mean that conflicts simply freeze every December 25th. Here’s a look at some of the major military events that have fallen on Christmas, a date with a surprisingly rich history.
1776 — George Washington Crosses The Delaware River
Important events in both of America’s most formative wars — the Revolutionary War and the Civil War — took place on Christmas. Washington led his troops across a 300-yard stretch of the Delaware River in the dead of night between December 25 and 26, 1776. The surprise move would put Washington’s men a 19-mile march away from a garrison of Hessians (German mercenaries hired by the British to help them in their effort to retain a hold on the rebelling colonies) that the Continental Army took completely by surprise.
1868 — US President Andrew Johnson pardons former Confederate soldiers
Nearly a century later, on Christmas Day of 1868, US president Andrew Johnson extended a full pardon and amnesty “to all and to every person who, directly or indirectly, participated in the late insurrection or rebellion”.
1914 — German, British, and French soldiers make temporary peace to celebrate Christmas together
On Christmas Day in 1914, the first Christmas of World War I, soldiers left their trenches to observe the holiday in peace. In the midst of war, soldiers laid down their arms to sing Christmas carols, play soccer, and barter with the cigarettes and sweets they’d received in care packages from the nations they served.
1941 — Japan seizes control of Hong Kong at the expense of the United Kingdom.
Japan’s aggression during World War II began well before the attack on Pearl Harbor. In 1931, Imperial Japan invaded Manchuria, a vast coastal region in northeast China. In 1937, it made advances on the rest of the country as well. Japan announced the surrender of the colony by radio broadcast on Christmas Day, 1941.
1941 — Admiral Émile Muselier captures Saint Pierre and Miquelon, an archipelago near Canada, for the Free French Forces
The North American continent does not feature as a hot spot in the events of World War II. But soon after France’s fall to the Nazis, the colonial governor of a few small islands off the coast of Newfoundland started working with the resistance. Writing back to the Vichy government — the Nazi’s puppet regime in France — Baron Gilbert de Bournat wrote of “British pressure to rally to the British or de Gaullist causes.” That pressure would have found sympathizers on the islands. Its population was originally mobilized, in 1939, to help defend France’s mainland, and some ship-owners docked there refused to return to Vichy France. On Christmas Eve, 1941, a small task force under Admiral Émile Muselier stormed the island under the cover of night. They met no resistance and the island’s administrative centers were taken within an hour, eliminating what otherwise could have served as a Nazi outpost deep among Allied nations while giving the Free French cause legitimacy.
