The Battle of Agincourt

Tomorrow is the anniversary of the BATTLE OF AGINCOURT in 1415. It was one bloody mother of a fight in a newly plowed field that had been through a rainy night so the battle was fought in mud. The English were outnumbered and left with mostly archers, but the English would prevail. The scene below from the movie HENRY V is Henry himself working his troops into a fighting frenzy. Check out this to get a more complete history of the battle.
