Today in European history: the Albanian Revolt of 1912 ends

(I’m taking Labor Day off, but here’s a bit of September 4 history to tide you over)

Today is not Albanian Independence Day; that’s November 28, 1912, when Albania formally declared its independence from the Ottoman Empire as part of the First Balkan War. But the outcome of the ~8 month long 1912 Albanian Revolt, which ended on September 4, 1912, with the Ottomans acceding to almost all of the the rebels’ demands, was the immediate cause of that First Balkan War and, thus, I suppose, of Albanian independence.
