    Only independence leader that survived and prospered in Latin America was a PhD student from Paraguay. This is why kids should go to school and not fights.

    That's right! The coronation ceremony of the last Ottoman sultan. A very bleak period for the sultanate, which managed to survive for only a few months more.

    Indeed, I find the last decades of the Ottoman empire one of the most interesting periods in world history.

    The Partition of the Ottoman empire? It could be French colonial troops marching in to take possession of one of the French mandates? The officers look like they could be French.

    Yes I can accept this answer since almost two weeks have passed.
    It is indeed French (Senegalese) troops entering the city of Adana, during the partition of the Ottoman empire, your turn!

    Pretty easy to be honest tho... Belvedere Square in Vienna, Where Molotov and Fiegl signed an agreement on the Austrian matter and proclaim "Austria is free".

    That is correct, it is the signing of the State Treaty which ended the Allied occupation in 1955.
