16 August 1918

The Czechoslovak Legion and the Red Army clash in the Battle of Lake Baikal (Siberia) during the Russian Civil War. The Czechoslovak Legion was a volunteer force composed of Czechs and Slovaks who fought alongside the Allies (the largest contingent served with the Russians) during World War I. After the Bolsheviks seized power in 1917, the head of the Czechoslovak National Council, Tomas Masaryk, began planning for the legion to transfer to the Western Front. As most of Russia’s ports were blockaded, Masaryk ordered the legion to travel to the port of Vladivostok in the Russian Far East. The journey would be over 6,000 miles. While initially neutral in the Russian Civil War, by the spring of 1918 the legion began to clash with the Bolsheviks. On 15 August, the legion captured two Bolshevik steamships on Lake Baikal. The following day the legion’s steamships engaged a Red Army icebreaker outside the port of Mysova. The legion successfully sank the ship and destroyed Mysova’s train station—minutes before a Red Army armored train arrived. The battle marked the only naval engagement the Czechoslovak Legion participated in. See MoreSee Less

Not surprisingly, surviving records indicate some of the first words to make the migration were: “battle,” “conquest,” “arms,” “siege,” “lance,” and “armor.” See MoreSee Less

9 August 1877

The US Army and Nez Perce clash in the Battle of the Big Hole in southern Montana. In June 1877, war broke out between the US government and several bands of the Nez Perce tribe. Dubbed “non-treaty Indians,” these bands were forced to give up their ancestral homelands and were to be placed on a reservation in Idaho. After defeating the US Army in the Battle of White Bird Canyon, the Nez Perce began their long trek in hopes of reaching Canada. Throughout the summer of 1877, the Nez Perce moved east into Montana. After their clash at Fort Fizzle (near modern day Lolo, Montana) the Nez Perce moved south into the Big Hole Basin. While camped along the shores of the Big Hole River, the Nez Perce were attacked by soldiers of the 7th Infantry Regiment led by Col. John Gibbon on 9 August 1877. The Nez Perce successfully counterattacked the surprise assault, driving the soldiers back across the river, pinning them down for the remainder of the battle. After two days of fighting, the Nez Perce successfully escaped from the battlefield. See MoreSee Less
