An event that goes uncommented now given that so much water has flown under the bridges on the Tiber since then — over 700-year ago.

But, a turning point in both political and religious history.

The crusades were quite the thing. The fall of Acre was a body blow to those in the West.

So, on this Memorial Day weekend, spare a thought for how the Crusades to Jerusalem came to an end.
