    French expeditions advanced into the region in 1890, and French sovereignty over Chad was recognized by agreements among the European powers. In 1900, French forces defeated Rabah's army, and by 1913 the conquest of Chad was completed; it was organized as a French colony in French Equatorial Africa and remained under military rule.in 1920 it again became a separate colony.Full independence was attained on Aug. 11, 1960.Chad suffered severely from the W African drought of the late 1960s and 1970s.The late 1990s saw renewed fighting in the north and other parts of the country.
    Fighting between local rebels and government troops and militias in Darfur, Sudan, which began in early 2003, has driven tens of thousands of refugees into Chad. In May, 2004, Chad's national assembly approved a constitutional amendment that ended the two-term limit on the presidencyn. Dec., 2005, the national assembly voted to allow the government to use oil revenues that were to be set aside, under an agreement with the World Bank, for poverty reduction projects and future uses. Chad said the change was necessary because of national financial difficulties, caused in part by the rebellion in the east.
    Dec., 2006, of a peace agreement with one group of rebels did not fundamentally alter Chad's deteriorated security situation. Fighting with the rebels continued sporadically into 2007.n September the UN Security Council authorized the sending of peacekeepers to Chad to protect refugees there, and the following month the government and the main rebel forces signed a peace accord.

    Could you help me summarize my summary? Did I miss anything important from the reading?

    What about Chad's history before 1890?

    I'd summarize your first paragraph this way:

    Chad was a French colony from 1890 to 1960.
