The Battle of Helms Deep:

One of the major battles in the War of the Ring, the Battle of the Hornburg occurred on March 3rd 3019. This was a battle between Rohan and the armies of Saruman, then known as Saruman the White. The forces of Rohan had the aid of the Huorns from Fangorn Forest and were victorious.
Saruman's armies contained Orcs, Wolf-Riders, Half-orcs and Dundlendings. They also had a "blasting fire" with which they took the Wall of Helms Deep. They did not take the Hornburg and were defeated by both Rohirrim armies and the Huorns, so soundly that few orcs returned to their master.
It was during this battle that Gimli discovered the Glittering Caves of Aglarond where he later settled with many other dwarves.

Battle of the Five Armies:

The Battle of the Five Armies occurred in 2941 of the Third Age. This battle began between the Dwarves on one side and the Wood-Elves and the Men of Lake-Town on the other. The Men of Lake-Town and the King of the Wood-Elves demanded a portion of the spoils of the Lonely Mountain after the death of Smaug, and Thorin refused them. At that time there were only the thirteen dwarves from the quest of Erebor. Thorin sent a message by raven to his cousin Dain in the Iron Hills. Several days later they arrived and seeing the siege, attacked the Men and Elves. Gandalf appeared in the middle of things and forced a truce, during which he informed them of the approaching army of Orcs and wargs. The Men, Dwarves and Elves allied against the Orcs, but even so they were greatly outnumbered. Then the Eagles arrived, as did Bëorn. These brought victory against the Orcs. However, Thorin, Fíli and Kíli died in the battle.
The full record of this battle is given by Bilbo in the Hobbit, the diary of his journey with the Dwarves.

Battle of Azanulbizar:

The final battle in the war of the Dwarves and the Orcs, in which the Dwarves, in return for an insult done to the body of Thror, pursued an extermination policy against the orcs. In this final battle the Dwarves had the victory, though with great loss. Thanks to this battle, the Orc population was diminished for many years, allowing safer travel. However, the orc population had grown back to normal by the time of the War of the Ring.

Battle of the Gladden Fields:

The battle of the Gladden Fields was fought between orcs, guarding the area from retreating Dúnedain after the War of the Last Alliance and Isildur, with a small guard. Isildur was heading north towards the passes of the Misty Mountains and Rivendell. He was ambushed with a small guard. They managed to survive the day, but that evening, Isildur, wearing the Ring, attempted to swim the Anduin. The Ring slipped off his finger and he was seen by the orcs. He was shot by their arrows and killed. However, as was later found, the area where they were was not very deep, about shoulder deep on a tall man, and fairly slow-running.
There are at least two different traditions recorded about the Battle of the Gladden Fields, with the other stating that they were surrounded by a great host of orcs and overthrown. I believe the first tradition, as it was borne out by fact, as they found some artifacts of Isildur's death in Orthanc after. Only three men made it to Rivendell, including Ohtar, with the shards of the Narsil.

Battle of the Fords of Isen:

There were two battles against Saruman's forces at the Fords of Isen during the War of the Ring, the first on February 25 3019, and the second on March 2 3019.
In the first, Théoden's son, Théodred was slain by orcs and his army defeated, and in the second, Erkenbrand and his soldiers were victorious against the orcs.

Dagor Aglareb:

The Glorious Battle. One of the major battles fought between the Noldor and Morgoth. In this battle the Noldor were victorious and completely destroyed the armies sent against them.

Dagor Bragollach:

The Battle of Flame. In this battle, Morgoth sent out rivers of fire. At the same time, Glaurung attacked along with Balrogs and Orcs. It was after the first defeat in this battle that Fingolfin challenged Morgoth to single combat. In this battle, Fingolfin wounded Morgoth seven times, and ever after, Morgoth walked with a limp due to one of the the wounds. Fingolfin was slain and the plain of Ard-galen remained barren after.
Therefore Morgoth came, climbing slowly from his subterranean throne, and the rumor of his feet was like thunder underground. And he issued forth clad in black armour; and he stood before the King like a tower, iron-crowned, and his vast shield, sable unblazoned, cast a shadow over him like a stormcloud. But Fingolfin gleamed beneath it as a star; for his mail was overlaid with silver, and his blue shield was set with crystals; and he drew his sword Ringil, that glittered like ice.
Then Morgoth hurled aloft Grond, the Hammer of the Underworld, and swung it down like a bolt of thunder. But Fingolfin sprang aside, and Grond rent a mighty pit in the earth whence smoke and fire darted. Many times Morgoth essayed to smite him, and each time Fingolfin leaped away, as a lighting shoots from under a dark cloud; and he wounded Morgoth with seven wounds, and seven times Morgoth gave a cry of anguish, whereat the hosts of Angband fell upon their faces in dismay, and the cries echoed in the Northlands.
But at last the King grew weary, and Morgoth bore down his shield upon him. Thrice he was crushed to his knees, and thrice arose again and bore up his broken shield and stricken helm. But the earth was all rent and pitted about him, and he stumbled and fell backward before the feet of Morgoth; and Morgoth set his left foot upon his neck, and the weight of it was like a fallen hill. Yet with his last and desperate stroke Fingolfin hewed the foot with Ringil, and the blood gushed forth black and smoking and filled the pits of Grond.
Thus died Fingolfin, High King of the Noldor, most proud and valiant of the Elven-Kings of old. The Orcs made no boast of that duel at the gate; neither do the Elves sing of it, for their sorrow is too deep.
In this battle, the Noldor lost the plain of Ard-galen and the forests of Dorthonion, which became known as the Forests of Night afterwards.

Great Battle:

The battle that ended the First Age of the Sun. It ended with the defeat of Morgoth and the unfortunate destruction of most of Beleriand. It was also the last time that the Valar will have left Aman for battle until the end of time yet to come in the Final Battle. Most of the Eldar in Aman at that time joined the Valar for this battle.

The Great Journey:

The journey of the Elves from the eastern regions of Middle-Earth to Aman. This journey lasted many years and was led by the Vala Oromë. The hosts of the Elves were in three sections, the Vanyar, who came first, the Noldor, who were the second, and the Teleri, who were the greatest numbers, and many left the journey and remained in Middle-Earth, especially among the Teleri.

Great Plague:

A plague that swept through Middle-Earth from the south-east. It occurred in the Third Age during the years 1636 and 1637. Many parts of the lands were deserted afterwards, and the watch on Mordor was abandoned. The casualties included the King of Gondor and all of his children. At the same time the White Tree died.

Hunt for the Ring:

A seventeen year search for the One Ring. Sauron involved the Ringwraiths, orcs, and many spies in this search. Sometime between the years 2980 and 3009 of the Third Age, Gollum was captured on the borders of Mordor and tortured by Sauron. Though Gollum did not give out much information, he did give Bilbo's name.
The Ringwraiths discovered the Shire in 3018, but did not find Frodo until they ambushed him on Weathertop on October 6. Even then he escaped them and continued to do so, making it to Rivendell. After this point, there was very little said about the hunt for the Ring.

The Kinslaying at Alqualondë:

The first evil of the Oath of Fëanor, and a major cause of the eventual Doom of the Noldor.
When the Teleri wouldn't join Fëanor or give him their ships, Fëanor led the host of the Noldor to attack the Teleri and steal the ships. Many of the Teleri were slain and as a result wouldn't join the Vanyar in the Great battle, though they were persuaded to sail the ships to Middle-Earth, not one of the Teleri set foot on land.

The Kin-Strife:

The civil war in Gondor between the years 1432 and 1448 of the Third Age, it was fought over favours shown to the Northmen and the fear that it was weakening the Dúnedain blood and shortening their lifespan. The King had to flee Gondor, but ten years later returned with an army and retook his country. The surviving rebels fled to Umbar, where they caused trouble until the time of the War of the Ring.

Last Alliance:

The Last Alliance of Men and Elves. This army was the greatest in Middle-Earth after the host of the Valar in the Great Battle. In 3434 of the Second Age, Gil-galad, the last High King of the Noldor and Elendil, the High King of Arnor and Gondor, declared war on Sauron. They successfully besieged Barad-Dûr after winning the battle on the Dagorlad. The siege lasted until 3441, when Sauron was overthrown on the slopes of Orodruin. However, both Elendil and Gil-galad died also. Isildur claimed the Ring, and set the stage for the War of the Ring which ended the Third Age.

Nirnaeth Arnoediad:

The Battle of Unnumbered Tears. The most disastrous of the battles in Beleriand. It was this battle that ended most of the resistance to Morgoth in northern Beleriand. This was also the first battle in which treachery played a part as the Men of Ulfang turned on the host of Maedhros, delaying them and preventing and effective use of the armies. From all of the armies of the Edain, of whom most fell screening the retreat of the armies of Turgon there was only one survivor, Hurín. He was captured by Morgoth, and kept in torment for many years atop Thangorodrim.
Last of all Hurín stood alone. Then he cast aside his shield and wielded and axe two-handed; and it is sung that the axe smoked in the black blood of the troll-guard of Gothmog until it withered, and each time that he slew Hurín cried: 'Aurë entuluva! Day shall come again!' Seventy times he uttered that cry; but they took him at last alive, by the command of Morgoth, for the Orcs grappled him with their hands, which clung to him still though he hewed off their arms; and ever their numbers were renewed, until at last he fell buried beneath them. Then Gothmog bound him and dragged him to Angband with mockery. (S.234-235)

The Quest of Mount Doom:

Frodo's quest to destroy the One Ring. This happened during the War of the Ring in the years 3018 to 3019 of the Third Age. This quest was successful, though with great cost for Frodo as he was seriously injured several times, including by the Morgul Knife belonging to the Witch-King, the sting of Shelob and by Gollum biting off his finger, in order to get the One Ring. The full tale is told in the book The Lord of the Rings, written by Bilbo Baggins, Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgeee.

The Quest of the Silmaril:

This came about because of Thingol's request that in order to marry Lúthien, Beren had to gain one of the three Silmarils from Morgoth's crown. The quest was successful though both Beren and Lúthien died in the end.

The Siege of Gondor:

Beginning on the 13th of March, 3019 of the Third Age, the siege of Gondor lasted until the 15th of March, culminating in the destruction of the Gate to Minas Tirith, the coming of the Rohirrim and of the Grey Company, and the death of the Witch-King. The siege caused heavy losses to the forces of Gondor and was very demoralizing as the Nazgûl were constantly overhead and the fumes of Orodruin were causing an evil darkness over the land. At the end, the Steward Denethor burned himself on a pyre rather than submit to defeat as he thought would come.

The Siege of Angband:

A four hundred year period of the ongoing war between Morgoth and the Eldar, this was a time of relative peace for the Eldar and the Atani. It began after the Dagor Aglareb, and extended until the Dagor Bragollach.

The Siege of Barad-Dûr:

The final seven years of the War of the Last Alliance. During this time period, Anárion was slain by a cast stone from the tower. The siege began in the year 3434 of the Second Age of the Sun and lasted until 3441 of the Second Age.

The War of the Jewels:

This war lasted almost from the rising of the Sun until the end of the First Age of the Sun. It was between Morgoth and the Eldar, after the Dark Lord stole the Silmarils. Unfortunately it eventually ended up with elf fighting elf, due to the the Oath of Fëanor:
Then Fëanor swore a terrible oath. His seven sons leapt straightaway to his side and took the selfsame vow together, and red as blood shone their drawn swords in the glare of the torches. They swore an oath which none shall break, and none should take, by even the name of Ilúvatar, calling the Everlasting Dark upon them if they kept it not; and Manwë they named in witness, and Varda, and the hallowed mountain of Taniquetil, vowing to pursue with vengeance and hatred to the ends of the World Vala, Demon, Elf or Man as yet unborn, or any creature, great or small, good or evil, that time should bring forth unto the end of days, whoso should hold or take or keep a Silmaril from their possession. Thus spoke Maedhros and Maglor and Celegorm, Curufin and Caranthir, Amrod and Amras, princes of the Noldor; and many quailed to hear the dread words. For so sworn, good or evil, an oath may not be broken, and it shall pursue oathkeeper and oathbreaker to the world's end. (S.97-98)

The war was never fully successful, probably due to the doom placed on the Noldor for their deeds in leaving Valinor.
Tears unnumbered ye shall shed; and the Valar will fence Valinor against you, and shut you out, so that not even the echo of your lamentation shall pass over the moutains. On the House of Fëanor the wrath of the Valar lieth from the West unto the uttermost East, and upon all that will follow them it shall be laid also. Their Oath shall drive them, and yet betray them, and ever snatch away the very treasures that they have sworn to pursue. To evil end shall all things turn that they begin well; and by treason of kin unto kin and the fear of treason, shall this come to pass. The Disposessed shall they be forever. Ye have spilled the blood of your kindred unrighteously and have stained the land of Aman. For blood ye shall render blood, and beyond Aman ye shall dwell in Death's shadow. For though Eru appointed to you to die not in Eä, and no sickness may assail you, yet slain ye may be, and slain ye shall be: by weapon and by torment and grief; and your houseless spirits shall come then to Mandos. There long shall ye abide and yearn for your bodies, and find little pity though all whom ye have slain should entreat for you. And those that endure in Middle-earth and come not to Mandos shall grow weary of the world as with a great burden, and shall wane, and become as shadows of regret before the younger race that cometh after. The Valar have spoken. (S.103-104)

By the end of the War of the Jewels, one of the Silmarils was in the sky with Eärendil, as the Evening Star, another had been thrown in the ocean, and the third into a crevasse in the earth.

War of the Dwarves and the Orcs:

War between the Orcs of the Misty Mountains and the Dwarves, lasting between the years 2793 and 2799 of the Third Age. It ended with the Battle of Azanulbizar, in which the Dwarves were victorious. The Orc population had been reduced enough to make passage through the mountains safe for the next century or so.
