The Battle of Adwa

with one comment

The stunning victory at Adwa required Europeans to take Ethiopia and Africa more seriously. It not only initiated a decade of negotiations with European powers in which nine border treaties were signed, it made Europeans begin to reconsider their prejudices against Africans. It came to symbolize a rising awareness among Europeans of African political resources and yearnings and an increasing recognition of indigenous African cultural accomplishments. ”

  1. Adwa, was the battle of all battles. So much is believed to have not been chronicled in regards to the Adwa battle.
