Duchy of Milan

Emperor and King of Bohemia. The background of the Dutch Revolt is also necessary to understanding the events leading up to the Thirty Years' War. It was widely known that the Twelve Years' Truce was set to expire in 1621, and throughout Europe it was recognized that at that time, Spain would attempt to reconquer the Dutch Republic. At that time, forces under Ambrogio Spinola, 1st Marquis of the Balbases, the Genoese (Republic of Genoa) commander of the Spanish army, would be able to pass through friendly territories to reach the Dutch Republic; the only hostile state that stood in his way was the Electoral Palatinate. C. V. Wedgwood, ''The Thirty Years War'' (Penguin, 1957, 1961), p. 50. (Spinola's preferred route would take him through the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Milan, through the Val Telline, around hostile Switzerland bypassing along the north shore of Lake Constance, then through Alsace, the Archbishopric of Strasbourg, then through the Electoral Palatinate, and then finally through the Archbishopric of Trier, Jülich (Duchy of Jülich) and Berg (Berg (state)) and on to the Dutch Republic). The Electoral Palatinate thus assumed a strategic importance in European affairs out of all proportion to its size. This explains why the Protestant James I of England arranged for the marriage of his daughter Elizabeth Stuart (Elizabeth of Bohemia) to Frederick V, Elector Palatine in 1612, in spite of the social convention that a princess would only marry another royal. Death of Augustus II Augustus II died on February 1, 1733. Throughout the spring and summer of 1733, France began building up forces along its northern and eastern frontiers, while the emperor massed troops on Polish borders, reducing garrisons in the Duchy of Milan for the purpose. While the aging Prince Eugene of Savoy had recommended to the emperor a more warlike posture against potential actions by France in the Rhine valley and northern Italy, only minimal steps were taken to improve imperial defenses on the Rhine. thumb right French mounted grenadier (File:French mounted grenadiers of Louis XV.PNG)s of Louis XV On October 10, France declared war on Austria and Saxony. Louis XV was later joined by his uncle, King Philip V of Spain, who hoped to secure territories in Italy for his sons by his second marriage to Elizabeth Farnese. Specifically, he hoped to secure Mantua (Duchy of Mantua) for the elder son, Don Carlos (Charles III of Spain), who was already Duke of Parma and had the expectation of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, and the Kingdoms of Naples (Kingdom of Naples) and Sicily (Kingdom of Sicily) for the younger son, Don Felipe (Philip of Parma). The two Bourbon monarchs were also joined by Charles Emmanuel of Savoy, who hoped to secure gains from the Austrian Duchies of Milan (Duchy of Milan) and Mantua (Duchy of Mantua). place Europe, North America and the West Indies territory Spain cedes the Spanish Netherlands, Kingdom of Naples, Duchy of Milan and Sardinia to the Habsburg Monarchy, Sicily to the Duchy of Savoy and Gibraltar and Minorca to Britain. France is guaranteed all its former conquests but recognizes British sovereignty over Rupert's Land and Newfoundland (Newfoundland (island)) and cedes Acadia and its half of Saint Kitts to Great Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain). The Dutch Republic retains various forts in the Southern Netherlands and annexes a part of Spanish Guelders. result Treaty of Utrecht 1713 (Treaty of Utrecht) Treaty of Rastatt 1714 (Treaty of Rastatt) Philip (Philip V of Spain) is partially recognized as King of Spain, but renounces any claim to the throne of France (Early Modern France). Spain (Spanish Empire) and Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain) sign the ''Asiento''. Armed conflict began slowly, as Austrian forces under Prince Eugene of Savoy invaded the Duchy of Milan, one of the Spanish territories in Italy, prompting French intervention. England, the United Provinces, and most of the German states (notably Prussia and Hanover (Electorate of Hanover)), sided with Austria. The Wittelsbach Electors (Wittelsbach) of Bavaria (History of Bavaria#Electorate) and Cologne (Archbishopric of Cologne) supported France and Spain. Portugal, while initially allied with the French, switched sides very early on with the Methuen Treaty. In Spain, the cortes (parliament) of Aragon, Valencia (Kingdom of Valencia), and Catalonia (regions of the Crown of Aragon) declared themselves in favor of the Austrian Archduke. Although King William III died in 1702, his successor in England, Queen Anne (Anne of Great Britain), continued the vigorous prosecution of the war, under the guidance of her ministers, Godolphin (Sidney Godolphin, 1st Earl of Godolphin) and Marlborough (John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough). The city was founded by the Insubres, a Celtic (Celts) people. Milan was later captured by the Romans in 222 BC, and later was the capital city of the Western Roman Empire from 286 until 402 AD. The city became one of the most prosperous Italian cities during the High Middle Ages, playing a primary role in the Lombard League. Later Milan became the capital city of the Duchy of Milan, being ruled by the Visconti (House of Visconti), the Sforza (House of Sforza), the Spanish (Kingdom of Spain) and the Austria (Austrian Empire)ns. In 1796, Milan was conquered by the French troops of Napoleon, only to be given again to the Austrian Empire at the Congress of Vienna of 1815. In 1859 the city was eventually annexed to the House of Savoy, and soon started to lead the industrialization process of the new Kingdom of Italy (Kingdom of Italy (1861–1946)). During World War II, the city was badly affected by Allied bombings, and after German occupation in 1943, Milan became the main center of the Italian resistance movement. On 15 May 1702 the Powers of the Grand Alliance (Grand Alliance (League of Augsburg)), led by England and the Dutch Republic, declared war on France and Spain. Emperor Leopold I (Leopold I, Holy Roman Emperor) also declared war on the Bourbon powers, but his forces under Prince Eugene (Prince Eugene of Savoy) had already begun hostilities in northern Italy along the Po Valley in an attempt to secure for Austria the Spanish Duchy of Milan. Eugene’s successful 1701 campaign had aroused enthusiasm in England for war against France, and helped Emperor Leopold’s efforts in persuading King William III (William III of England) to send an Allied fleet to the Mediterranean Sea. Count Wratislaw (John Wenceslau Wratislaw von Mitrowitz), the Emperor’s envoy in England, urged that the sight of an Allied fleet in the Mediterranean would effect a revolution in the Spanish province of Naples (Kingdom of Naples); win south Italy from the precarious grip of Philip V (Philip V of Spain); overawe the Francophile Pope Clement XI; and encourage the Duke of Savoy (Victor Amadeus II of Sardinia) – and other Italian princes – to change sides. Trevelyan: ''England Under Queen Anne: Blenheim,'' p. 262 More modestly, Prince Eugene pleaded for a squadron to protect the passage of his supplies from Trieste across the Adriatic (Adriatic Sea).

NOAA's ship fleet provides hydrographic survey, oceanographic and atmospheric research, and fisheries research vessels to support NOAA's strategic plan elements and mission. Some ships of the fleet have been retired from the United States Navy or other maritime services. The vessels are located in various locations around the United States. The ships are managed by the Marine Operations Center, which has offices in Norfolk, Virginia and Newport, Oregon. Logistic support for these vessels is provided by the Marine Operations Center offices or, for vessels in Woods Hole, Massachusetts; Charleston, South Carolina; Pascagoula, Mississippi; San Diego, California; and Honolulu, Hawaii; by Port Captains located in those ports. Ship ordered 23 March 1978 Ship builder Litton Ingalls (Ingalls Shipbuilding), Pascagoula (Pascagoula, Mississippi), Mississippi Ship laid down 23 October 1978 Because the storm was so large, highly destructive eye-wall winds and the strong northeastern quadrant of the storm pushed record storm surges onshore, smashing the entire Mississippi Gulf Coast, including towns in Mississippi such as Waveland (Waveland, Mississippi), Bay St. Louis (Bay St. Louis, Mississippi), Pass Christian (Pass Christian, Mississippi), Long Beach (Long Beach, Mississippi), Gulfport (Gulfport, Mississippi), Biloxi (Biloxi, Mississippi), Ocean Springs (Ocean Springs, Mississippi), Gautier (Gautier, Mississippi) and Pascagoula (Pascagoula, Mississippi), and, in Alabama, Bayou La Batre (Bayou La Batre, Alabama). The surges peaked at 28 feet (8.5 m) in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, and at 13 feet (4.0 m) as far away as Mobile, Alabama, which saw its highest storm surge since 1917. Storm surge was particularly high due to the hydrology of the region, the hurricane's extreme size, and the fact that it weakened only shortly before landfall. As Katrina moved inland diagonally over Mississippi, high winds cut a swath of damage that affected almost the entire state. '''NOAAS ''Ronald H.

She was launched on May 30, 1996 at Halter Marine's Moss Point shipyard in Pascagoula (Pascagoula, Mississippi) (the keel being laid in February 1995) and then commissioned on July 19, 1997 in Charleston (Charleston, South Carolina). She was NOAA's first newly built oceanographic research vessel in 17 years. From 1950 to 1954 he was project manager for an exploratory fishing and gear development program for the Bureau at Pascagoula, Mississippi. During his tenure there, the project was expanded making notable progress in developing more effective fishing methods for shrimp and tuna in the Gulf of Mexico.

Additionally, hurricane watches extended out to Destin, Florida and High Island, Texas from the edges of the warning respectively. Early the next day, a tropical storm warning was issued for areas between Pascagoula, Mississippi and Destin, Florida. In response to the eastward movement of the hurricane, the hurricane watch and warning was discontinued for areas west of Morgan City, Louisiana. Additionally, the hurricane warning was extended eastward to Destin, Florida, a tropical storm warning was issued east of Destin to Apalachicola, Florida, and a tropical storm watch was declared for areas between Morgan City and Cameron, Louisiana. Several hours later, the hurricane warning was again extended eastward to the mouth of the Suwannee River. All watches and warnings were discontinued for areas west of Pascagoula, Mississippi and due to the asymmetrical structure of Hurricane Earl, a tropical storm warning was issued as far south as the Florida Keys. Continuing uncertainty in the track of Earl prompted the issuance of a hurricane watch and tropical storm warning for areas between Pascagoula, Mississippi and Grand Isle, Louisiana, including the city of New Orleans. After Earl made landfall in Florida, all watches and warnings were discontinued in relation to the storm.

Preparations Shortly after the formation of the storm, the National Hurricane Center issued a tropical storm watch for the coastal area between Pascagoula, Mississippi and the Suwanee River in Florida. A tropical storm warning for the region between Grand Isle, Louisiana and Apalachicola, Florida replaced the watch, though it was discontinued east of Apalachicola. All tropical cyclone warnings and watches were discontinued by 1800 UTC on September 14, as there was no longer a need for the advisories. After the landfall, officials issued flood watches for inland parts of Mississippi and Alabama as well as for western portions of Georgia and the Carolinas.

He then went on an offensive which, by mid-April, had reached as far as Sallum, Egypt. The sole remaining Allied (Allies of World War II) position in Libya was the heavily fortified port of Tobruk, which Rommel had surrounded and placed under siege.

of displaced villagers became refugees in the city. During the revolution, the city was briefly taken over by the famous revolutionaries Francisco "Pancho" Villa (Pancho Villa) and Emiliano Zapata. While most of the Mexican Revolution was fought outside of the city, one major episode of this era did. La decena trágica ("The Ten Tragic Days") was a series of events leading to a coup d’etat in Mexico City between 9 and 22 February 1913 against President (President of Mexico) Francisco I. Madero and his vice president, José María Pino Suárez. After deposing President Porfirio Díaz and taking power in 1911, Mexicans expected Madero to make widespread changes in government but were surprised and disappointed to find Madero following many of the same policies and employing the same personnel as the Díaz government. This eventually resulted in revolts against the Madero regime. Madero's fear of these revolts led him to commission Victoriano Huerta as chief general of the Federal Army (Huerta's Federal Army). Huerta was effective in putting down rebellions, but had ambitions that Madero was blind to. Military success gave Huerta power, and he saw an opportunity to make himself dictator. La decena trágica began when military academy cadets quartered in Tacubaya revolted and began an attack against the National Palace. Madero and Pino Suárez returned to the Palace to address the crisis, calling in reserves from other military academies and the forces of Felipe Ángeles in Cuernavaca to assist in defense. Meanwhile, Huerta convinced Madero to allow him to take over defense of the National Palace. Huerta betrayed Madero and Pino Suárez forcing Madero and Pino Suárez to sign resignations. On the night of 22 February, Huerta ordered Madero and Pino Suárez to be transferred to the Lecumberri prison (Palacio de Lecumberri), supposedly to be held for transfer to exile. Before the car reached the prison, it was pulled over by armed men and Madero and Pino Suárez were shot and killed.

Tombstone, Arizona

'''Virgil Walter Earp''' (July 18, 1843–October 19, 1905) fought in the Civil War (American Civil War). He was U.S. Deputy Marshal for south-eastern Arizona and Tombstone (Tombstone, Arizona) City Marshal at the time of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in the Arizona Territory. Two months after the shootout in Tombstone, outlaw Cowboys (The Cowboys (Cochise County)) ambushed Virgil on the streets of Tombstone, shattering his left arm, leaving him maimed for life. His brother Morgan Earp was assassinated in March and Virgil left Tombstone for Colton, California to live with his parents and recuperate. When 16 years old, Virgil was married in Pella, Iowa. While Earp served in the Union Army during the American Civil War, his wife received a false report that he had died and, so, moved to Oregon with her parents. Virgil did not see her or his daughter again for 37 years. He married two more times. ALTERNATIVE NAMES SHORT DESCRIPTION Deputy U.S. Marshal and city Marshal in Tombstone (Tombstone, Arizona), Arizona Territory in 1881 DATE OF BIRTH July 18, 1843 The basic rules provide for characters and settings that could be expected to appear in the "Wild West" genre of movies and pulp fiction (pulp magazines), and most of the in-game action is presumed to occur in the wild frontiers of the American West, or in barely tamed frontier towns like Tombstone, Arizona or Dodge City, Kansas. However, later supplements expanded the in-game adventuring area to include places such as the Deep South, the Mississippi River, Mexico, and the Northeastern United States. These supplements often provide for adventures set in urban areas such as New Orleans, New York City, or Boston (Boston, Massachusetts). As time went on, the company began its own mining operations as the western United States frontier expanded, and its mineral wealth, especially copper, started being discovered. The company focused largely on providing copper wire and cables to industry that became in high demand as the Industrial Revolution took hold. As the company diversified, it began investing in new railroads, essential in the company’s efforts to establish itself in the west, especially copper-rich Arizona, and to transport products to and from its markets on the eastern northeastern shores. During the late 19th century, in concert with its metal interests, Phelps Dodge Corporation became one of the largest producers of lumber and lumber products in the United States. In Tombstone, Arizona during 1900 E. B. Gage, Frank Murphy, and William Staunton consolidated their various mining properties into a single entity, the Tombstone Consolidated Mines Company. They re-started efforts to drain mines that had filled with water, laid a rail spur into town, and re-commenced mining. They experienced some success until the pumps failed in 1909. The new company filed for bankruptcy and the Phelps-Dodge Corporation (Phelps-Dodge) corporation acquired its claims.
