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.
