az(g)incourt

Standard

notice how i had to put that g in parentheses?  that’s because this battle from the hundred years war was misspelled by the british, and still is to this day.  we went to the site of this famous battle the other day, and learned that the french and british still have very different ideas on the subject.  whereas the british feel that it showed thier ingenuity on the battlefield with thier superior archers and strategy, the french believe that the mud was too muddy and the armor to cumbersome.  it was the turning point of the hundred years war, and guaranteed henry V as a hero and future shakespeare main character.  happy new year’s everyone and bonne annee!
