Shrewsbury Resources

The Battle of Shrewsbury was a battle fought on 21 July 1403 between an army led by the Lancastrian King Henry IV and a rebel army led by Henry "Harry Hotspur" Percy from Northumberland. The battle, the first in which English archers fought each other on English soil, ended with Hotspur’s death which finished the rebel challenge to Henry’s seizure of the throne from Richard II in 1399.
