Towton Remembered

Forgive my posting this a day late, but yesterday saw the anniversary of the Battle of Towton. On 29th March (Palm Sunday), 1461. Following a blood bath composed of the deaths of thousands, the Yorkists won a decisive victory over the Lancastrians, led by Queen Margaret (who naturally was not actually at the battle itself). The Queen, King and their young son, Edward, fled to Scotland.
