What Is It Good For?

Trivia brain teasers have some element of trivia in them, but they are not just pure trivia questions.

Kevin, Jodie and Ziggy were friends. As usual, Kevin and Jodie were arguing...

"But I'm sure that when you have all that cutlery, you work from the inside out!" Kevin said, repeating himself.
"No you silly goose! What would be the point in that? You'd be reaching for utensils getting further and further away! You work from the outside in!" Jodie replied.
"What do you say? Silly goose eh?" Kevin said, with raised volume.
"Does it even really matter?" Ziggy piped up, "I'm sure whichever way you do it, you get the food in you."
"It doesn't matter which is which." Jodie replied, "It's the fact that he refuses to believe that I am the one who is right for a change!"
On that note, Kevin got up, screeched the chair across the floor and stormed out of Ziggy's living room and Ziggy gave a sigh. Jodie thanked Ziggy for the food they had eaten earlier, (and because they used more than one set of cutlery, that is what sparked the argument) and left via the back door to avoid tension between them both.

Next day, Ziggy invited both Kevin and Jodie over, both unaware that the other one was also coming. Kevin arrived first.
"Jodie is coming too and I want you both to apologise." Ziggy stated firmly.
"But..." Kevin said hesitantly.
"No buts." Ziggy snapped.
"Fine." Kevin said, as he knew he knew he couldn't win a losing battle.

About 15 minutes later, Jodie arrived and Kevin got up and sighed.
"I'm sorry Jodie, that argument was silly and... was silly."
"Apology accepted!" Jodie said, "I am also sorry."
Kevin paused and said in what seemed a reluctant tone, "I did my research, it seems that you do in fact work from the outside in."
"Ha!" Ziggy said.

Later on, Jodie had a thought, "That must of been the shortest war ever!"
"Yeah! A 12 hour war!" Kevin said laughing.
"I hate to burst your bubble," Ziggy interrupted, "but there's been a war even shorter than that."
"Oh great Queen Ziggy! Please share your wisdom with us!" Kevin said sarcastically.
"Gimme a riddle!" Jodie said.
"Alright then. What am I talking about when I say this?"

Ziggy thought for a moment and then spoke.

"In 1896,
War was starting.
In 1896,
War was ending.
At 9:02 am,
War was starting.
At 9:40 am,
War was ending.
On the 27th August,
War was starting.
On the 27th August,
War was ending."

The question is, what was Ziggy talking about?
