Learning History The Fun Way!

Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand! June 28th 1914

"Two Bullets that caused a massive war and death of millions".

This historical event took place on June 28 1914 in Sarajevo Bosnia, when the Austro-Hungarian throne and his beloved wife were assassinated. The black hands (Serb Gang) were completely responsible and took pride of committing murder! After an unsuccessful attack by Nedeljko Čabrinović (bomber) the black hands were devastated and shocked to see that the Archduke had gotten away. Coincidentally, an hour later the Archduke was again travelling on the roads and the driver had taken a wrong turn. Gavrilo Princip(black hand leader) who had no absolute clue that the Archduke was coming down the street right in front of him, loaded his pistol and fired 2 bullets that killed a couple but started something that would take the lives of millions; World War One!

Prohibition! 1920s

Prohibition was the banning of alcohol way back in the 1920s. The veterans of World War One lost their wives, jobs, and bodies. The only solution to their depression was alcohol. This was getting out of hand, so eventually the government had to ban it. This was super important because it changed Canadian laws for generations to come.

Stock Market Crash 1930s!

The stock market crash was the absolute biggest downfall in Canadian economy history!Men who made large amounts of profits rapidly made enough money to feed their families. So many citizens invested on stocks and were out sober bankrupt. Many left their homes and tried to run away from their fears but nothing helped. Canadians will never forget this because it was a major downfall in their economy history and many died in drought.

Canadians fighting in D-Day ( Normandy Landings) 1943!

The largest seaborne invasion is history also known as D-Day! This event was being planned on since 1943! This event was also known as Operation Overload. Many series of events took place in the era of time. On June 6th 1944, the allied troops invaded France. British Prime Minister at the time (Winston Churchill) believed it was the only way to beat Germans on French soil. He created an organization called "Combined Operations"! This was a really important and proud battle for Canadians. Over 14,000 Canadians served and this vary battle could have changed the course of history forever. 14,000 out of the 15,000 Allied soldiers were Canadians. This is really heartwarming and should never be forgotten.
