Day 67 – Red or White Rose?

Blore Heath, just a couple of miles from where we live, was the site of a bloody battle on the 23rd Sept 1459 between the Lancastrian and Yorkist armies. A relatively small skirmish in the War of the Roses, some 3,000 of the 15,000 in the two armies were killed over the 2 days the battle lasted.
