St. Crispin's Day sees an English victory on this episode of This Day In History!
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony is back with Armand to tell us about the Battle of Agincourt that took place on this day in 1415. This battle proved to be very important for the Henry V and the English army as they were going up against a much larger and superior French army. 80% of Henry's army was made up of English and Welsh archers that were armed with the English longbow, which heavily hurt the French.
Also on this day in 1962, Adlai Stevenson shows photos to the United Nations Security Council proving that Soviet missiles are indeed in Cuba and Pablo Picasso is born in 1881.
