Operation Chromite

US Military History Throughout The Years

Short bits of history you know, and some you may not!

  • Moving An Army: Saturday, September 15, 1945 – The US Department of War issues figures showing that a total of 7,306,000 US troops (including a small number of Allied forces and civilians) and 126,859,000 tons of war cargo have been moved from American ports to all fronts between December 1941 and August 31, 1945.
  • Operation Chromite: Friday, September 15, 1950 – After a string of hard fought battles, defeats and little gains, a combined UN force, consisting mainly of US forces, begins amphibious landings at Inchon, South Korea. The force consisted of some 75,000 troops and was a complete surprise. The landings were preceded by days of naval and air bombings, along with a successful disinformation campaign. US forces quickly took the landing beaches and overwhelmed the lightly defended area, with North Korean reinforcements arriving to late to push the landing forces back. American forces spread out from Inchon, leading the way for the advance on Seoul, which was far longer and bloodier. The success of the landings aloud UN forces in the southern part of South Korea to break out of the Pusan Perimeter and take part in retaking Seoul. Only 224 Americans would be killed during the landings and proceeding battle at Inchon, while the North Koreans would lose over 1,300 killed.
  • Treaty of Fort Pitt: Thursday, September 17, 1778 – The Treaty of Fort Pitt, also known as also known as the Treaty With the Delawares, the Delaware Treaty, or the Fourth Treaty of Pittsburgh is signed. This treaty was the first formal treaty signed between the new United States of America and any Native American tribe. Though there had been treaties and alliances in the past between the Colonial Americans and Native Americans, this was the first that was put down and signed on paper. The treaty was with the Delaware Indians, Lenape, and was a essentially a formal treaty of alliance, allowing the US passage in Lenape territory and that the Lenape would afford American troops aid when called to. The location of the treaties signing at Fort Pitt is now present day downtown Pittsburg.
