All remaining Neapolitan troops sail from Palermo and withdraw from Sicily

Giuseppe Garibaldi, detail
06/19/1860
After defeat at Palermo left the capital and much of the island under Garibaldi's control, the thousands of Neapolitan troops on Sicily withdrew to the Italian mainland.  In twenty-four ships gathered for their transport, the forces of the Kingdom of Naples left the province for the last time on this day.
