1914 : A German submarine sinks three British ships in 1 hour

On September 22, 1914, the German submarine U-9 sank three British cruisers in one hour. 1,400 mariners were killed. The English who had not believed in the effectiveness of submarines, quickly changed their minds. Paradoxically, by sinking American ships to prevent the supply of the Allies the Germans will push the Americans, until now neutral, to declare war and this support will increase significantly.

1975 : Second assassination attempt on President Gerald Ford

On September 22, 1975, two weeks after a first assassination attempt in Sacramento, California, President Gerald Ford escaped a gunshot from a former FBI informant in San Francisco, thanks to a bystander, Oliver Sipple , a former Marine and Vietnam veteran. For the record, the White House had been reluctant to publicly thank Sipple for saving the life of the President because the former Marine was gay.

1980 : Iraq invaded Iran

On September 22, 1980, following the disputes on boundaries and the fear of a Shiite uprising in Iraq, Iraq invaded Iran. The war lasted until 1988. It was a trench warfare, with many uses of chemical weapons, very costly in human lives. The war cost 375,000 victims in Irak and more than 500,000 in Iran.

1993 : A train derailed in a swamp in Alabama

On September 22, 1993, very early in the morning, a towboat which sailed on the Mobile River in Alabama, with no navigation system and which was driven by an employee who did not know how to use the radar, drove into a bridge rail, low because its purpose was only to make the trains pass through the swamps. The rails were twisted and when a train arrived a few minutes later, it derailed and three locomotives and the first four cars ended up in water. 47 people were killed.
