The battle of Trafalgar was fought in 21 oCTOber 1805.  It was between France, Britain, Spain.  Lord Horatio Nelson was the best admiral Britain ever had.  He won at Copenhagen in 1801, Cape st Vincent in 1797 and at the battle of the Nile (Aboukir Bay)in 1798.  He died at Trafalgar.  Even though he won the battle, he died getting hit by a french sniper not far away.  He is still remembered today there is a statue of him at Trafalgar Square in London.
