Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today
The Battle of Lopera began.
The Spanish government decided to hold the Palos despite a German threat of reprisals.
Mahatma Gandhi emerged from two years of silence to make a political speech. He cryptically said, “Show me the way and I am prepared to return to gaol. I am prepared to be hanged. If you do all I want you to do, the Viceroy will say: ‘I am wrong – I thought you people were terrorists, and if you like we Britishers will return by the next steamer.’ We would then say to Lord Linlithgow and the British: ‘India is big enough to hold you and more like you.’ That is my Swaraj.” Gandhi denied that his speech indicated that he was returning to public life.
