Fact of the Day: Franco-Prussian War

The Franco-Prussian War happened between 1870-1871. It was fought between France and most states of modern day Germany, led by the Kingdom of Prussia. The war saw a huge change for both countries. All German states united as the German Empire. The French Empire became a Republic with the loss of Napoleon III. It also helped ignite hatred between the two groups of people.
