The Stuff Of History


As the vanguard of Edward’s cavalry crested the hills to the west, Seamus turned to his grandfather.

“I canna help but wonder...will men still talk of this day when I’m as old as you? Will our deeds be the stuff of legend?”

“Oh, better than that, lad. We shall be the stuff of history.”

“Well, but isn’t it all the same?” he asked with confusion.

“Nae, lad. Legends are things mighta happened but likely did not. History is the things truly happened that no man can gainsay or deny. Our victory here today shall deserve to be not legend but history.”
