In her book, The Rape of Nanking, Iris Chang wrote about the atrocities that happened within a few weeks in 1937.

The Japanese army quickly marched into the city and not only looted and burned the buildings of the city, but also systematically raped, tortured, and murdered over 300,000 Chinese civilians. The cruel treatment of the Chinese by Japanese soldiers represents the brutality behind the militaristic culture and their values of human lives.

They complained to the King about the high price of bread and the extra soldiers. They killed 2 bodyguards and threated to kill the Queen, because of that on Oct 6 the King, Queen and their eldest son went back to Paris, surrounded by 60,000 people.

During the protests, three people had been arrested at outside of the tower, all charged with obstructing government administration, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and reckless engagement. These protests occurred after Saturday, when a group of people against the protest and white nationalists met up with other right-wing groups at a Unite the Right event.

During the War of 1812, the British attacked the heart of our nation, Washington D.C. They were frustrated from the burning of their federal buildings in York, Canada, which is present day Toronto ,so they thought burning down the capitol was the best revenge. During the three days they were in the city, they set fire to most of it causing the majority of the small population to flee.
