November 14 This day during the Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War

November 14, 1918 – The Battle of Tulgas was fought between Allied and Bolshevik troops on the Northern Dvina River. It took place on the day the armistice ending World War I was signed, November 11, 1918, and is sometimes referred to as the “Peace Day’s Bloody Battle”. Shortly before the battle, the freezing of the local waterways resulted in the cutting off of the Tulgas Garrison from outside assistance. The Bolsheviks used this opportunity and their superior numbers to try and attack and conquer the isolated outpost, but were driven back with severe losses.
