History of Adwa

In 1896,Ethiopia, largely armed with spears and knives, defeats a well-equipped and organized Italian military bent on colonization.

On March 2, 1896, the Italians embarked on the final European conquest of an African nation, Ethiopia. With brilliant military intelligence and gallant generals at the helm, united and willed, the Ethiopian people rose their way to triumph over the Italians at the Battle of Adwa. The event ignited a lasting flame of hope, of freedom and independence in the hearts of African people.
