St. Crispin’s Day, Battle of Agincourt

Today, October 25th, is St. Crispin’s Day, the anniversary of the historic Battle of Agincourt (1415 AD), and the inspiration for one of the greatest soliloquies in the English language:

This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

—Shakespeare, Henry V (act IV scene iii)
