Battle of Trafalgar - October 21
Hello Atlantica Players,
Today's topic is the Battle of Trafalgar, which happened on October 21, 1805.
This was a sea battle fought between the British Royal Navy and the combined fleets of the French Navy and Spanish Navy. The battle was the most decisive British victory of the war.
The British victory spectacularly confirmed the naval supremacy that Britain had established during the 18th century and was achieved in part due to Nelson's departure from the prevailing naval tactical orthodoxy. Nelson died in this battle, but he is remembered as the greatest naval hero of England ever since.
In 2005, England had a commemorative celebration on the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.
Jang Yeong-sil was a Korean scientist and astronomer during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). Although Jang was born as a serf or slave, King Sejong's (r. 1418–1450) new policy of breaking class barriers placed on the national civil service allowed Jang to work at the royal palace. Jang's inventions, such as the rain gauge and the water gauge, highlight the technological advancements of the Joseon Dynasty.
From a discussion with the generals, Sejong learned that Korean melee weapons were duller and somewhat heavier than those of the neighboring countries; therefore, he sent Jang to Gyeongsang province, where he had spent his earlier life, to develop metal alloys for various weapons and tools. Since Jang used to be a gwan-no, he had already acquired much knowledge about metal working, and knew the geography of the area. Jang surveyed the available metals and their characteristics, and presented his research to king and the generals, contributing to the development of Korean weaponry.
