Crimean war fought also in Finland
The spring is here and a lot of things have lately been occupying my mind but none of them worth to blog about really, nothing to keep me ticking.
I was just surprised to hear about that the beginning of the Crimean War in the 1850´s actually began here in Finland with the British fleet supported by the French fleet entering the Baltic sea attacking various cities on the coast with a lot of shipyards were destroyed by fire and some Finns also getting killed. But then Finland was a part of the Russian empire and thus considered the enemy.
