Bingo! Well done, Apple. There will be a follow up post with the aftermath. 1st genocide of the 20th century, inspiration for Pynchon's Schwarzkommando in Gravity's Rainbow, etc.


African history is a subject that I know very little about. Today I learned a little about the battle of Hamakari.

My guess is either the Boer war of 1901,
Or some of the shenanigans played by the Boers as they trekked away from Jo'burg and the cape to the Orange Free State, casually removing the land title from the previous occupants. Another of our prouder moments -- NOT.

On Aug. 11, 1898, in the Spanish-American War, American troops entered the city of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. But this looks like after that. So I am stumped.
