Description: The Battle of Langensalza was fought on 27 June 1866 between the Kingdom of Hanover and the Prussians. The Hanoverians won the battle but were surrounded by a larger and reinforced Prussian army, and unable to link up with their Bavarian allies to the south, they surrendered. This marked the annexation of Hanover into the kingdom of Prussia as it systematically unified Germany into the modern nation state.
