Trafalgar Day

This is the anniversary of the famous naval battle fought by the British off Cape Trafalgar, Spain, in 1805, under the command of Viscount Horatio Nelson (1758-1805). The victory that cost Lord Nelson his life was commemorated by the column erected in his honor in London’s Trafalgar Square.
