17 May 1395

Wallachian forces defeat the Ottoman Empire in the Battle of Rovine. In the fall of 1394, after concluding a successful raiding campaign along the Danube River, the Ottomans invaded Wallachia. On 10 October 1394, the Ottoman army was defeated by the Wallachians in the Battle of Karanovasa. Fleeing Wallachia, the Ottomans reorganized their forces for a second invasion in the spring of 1395. Supported by their Serbian allies, the Ottomans attacked the Wallachians near the Argeș River on 17 May 1395. Despite being greatly outnumbered, the Wallachians were able to defeat the combined Ottoman-Serbian army. Though defeated the Ottomans gained valuable lessons from the battle and would later apply them in their victory at the Battle of Nicopolis in September 1396. See MoreSee Less

10 May 1775

American troops capture Fort Ticonderoga during the Revolutionary War. The British had captured Fort Ticonderoga from the French in 1759 during the French and Indian War. By 1775, the fort had lost most of its significance as a strategically important location and was manned by a small detachment of the 26th Regiment of Foot. While the fort’s strategic importance had diminished for the British, the Americans knew it had valuable assets for the war effort. Inside the fort, the British housed a collection of cannon, mortars, and howitzers—a resource desperately lacking in the American arsenal. The Americans sent a small force of militiamen, led by Ethan Allen (and his Green Mountain Boys) and Col. Benedict Arnold to capture the fort. The Americans surprised the British garrison in the early morning hours of 10 May 1775. After capturing the fort, the artillery was removed and sent to Gen. Washington, who was leading the siege of Boston. The artillery would be instrumental in breaking the standoff at Boston and forcing the British to evacuate the city. See MoreSee Less
