23 March 1879

Chilean troops defeat the Bolivians in the Battle of Topáter during the War of the Pacific. Tensions between Chile and Bolivia peaked in February 1878 when the Bolivian government imposed new taxes on Chilean saltpeter mines. Chile protested the new taxes, citing the 1874 Boundary Treaty that stated the Bolivian government would not increase taxes for 25 years on Chilean mines between the 23°S and 25°S parallels. On 11 February 1879, the Bolivian government confiscated the Chilean CSFA mine and threatened to sell it to collect the tax debt. Three days later Chilean troops marched north and occupied the Bolivian port city of Antofagasta. After seizing Antofagasta, Chilean troops marched east to occupy the town of Calama. On 23 March, the two sides clashed on the Topáter River outside of Calama. The Chileans, who outnumbered the Bolivians nearly four-to-one, emerged victorious. See MoreSee Less

British troops defeat the French in the Battle of Alexandria during the French campaign in Egypt. In 1798, the Republic of France launched their campaign to Egypt to protect their trading interests in the region and to undermine British access to India. After a successful campaign in Egypt, the French diverted their attention toward Syria. The failure of the Syrian campaign resulted in French forces retreating back to Egypt. In early March 1801, a British expeditionary force defeated the French in the battles of Abukir and Mandora and advanced toward Alexandria. In the early morning hours of 21 March, the French attacked the British near Alexandria. The attack failed, and the remaining French troops withdrew to Alexandria. See MoreSee Less

The Blue Angels are the US Navy’s flight demonstration squadron. Following the end of World War II, Adm. Chester Nimitz (then serving as Chief of Naval Operations) ordered the formation of a naval flight demonstration team to keep public interest in aviation. In June 1946, the Blue Angels performed their first show, flying the F6F Hellcat. Two months later the Hellcat was replaced with the F8F Bearcat, and on 25 August 1946 the Blue Angels introduced their famous “diamond” formation. By the end of the 1940s, the Blue Angels transitioned to jet aircraft, flying the F9F-2 Panther. From 1950 to 1986 the Blue Angels flew three other jet aircraft, the F11F-1 Tiger, F-4J Phantom II, and the A-4F Skyhawk. In November 1986 the Blue Angels adopted the F/A-18. Since their introduction in 1946, the Blue Angels have flown for more than 260 million spectators. See MoreSee Less
