William Shakespeare wrote his play Henry V in around 1600. In Act IV Henry delivers his speech before the battle. It is one of the most powerful and moving set of lines Shakespeare wrote. And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by, From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be rememberèd— 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. I will include a groat of Henry V, which I have posted before. Feel free to add your English and French coins.
