Revisionists Attacking Good King Hal

Revisionists Attacking Good King Hal
October 25, 2013
Share

Revisionist historians are at the top of the list of things that frosts The Pink Flamingo’s cookies, even more so than Democrats.

The Pink Flamingo owes King Hal and St. Crispin an apology. I forgot. St. Crispin’s Day is October 25. I blew it.

I always try to remember St. Crispin’s Day because I had an Clements ancestor (I share with Sam, Mannen, Jep, and Wes Hardin) who was knighted that day, by Henry, for saving his life!

The usual Henry Haters are at it again. Anne Curry, who has made a career out of damning Henry V, says the French did not have all that many troops, and the lopsided battle was all a lie.

Fortunately, cooler heads prevail.
