A Brief History of the Independence Day Struggle of Algeria---

Historical evidences state that since 10,000 BC, Berbers inhabited the country followed by the Carthaginians.

Algeria was placed under the Ottoman Empire in 1517, thereby extending the boundaries of the country.

The French conquest of the country was met out with great resistance, but finally in 1958 with the collapse of the ‘Fourth Republic' many European settlers moved to settle down in Algeria. In 1954, the National Liberation Front (FLN) impelled the Algerian War of Independence which continued for nearly a decade to thwart off the French rulers in 1962 which led to the establishment of independence in Algeria.

Hectic preparations are marked before the arrival of the actual day with young boys and girls taking active part in the social functions.
