All remaining Neapolitan troops sail from Palermo and withdraw from Sicily
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. (By John Osborne)
