Peking relived by multinational force

On this day in 1900, during the Boxer Rebellion, an international force featuring British, Russian, American, Japanese, French and German troops enter the Chinese capital of Peking after fighting its way 80 miles from the port of Tientsin. The Chinese nationalists besieging Peking's diplomatic quarter are crushed and the Boxer Rebellion effectively comes to an end.
