Ooh, good question, Chris!I'd have to choosea) Elizabeth's speech at Tilbury (just to see how climatic/anti-climatic it was, since sources dispute just how necessary it was. Whatever it is, it's a pretty rockin' speech.)b) The first performance of Hamlet. c) The Battle of Ethandund) The "Submission at Chester" to Edgar I by six British kings, where they (supposedly) rowed him up the River Dee, which would be the exact last time any Scot would ever consider doing that ever, in the history of the world.e) Robert the Bruce thwacking Sir Henry du Bohun in the head with an axe at the start of Bannockburn. I know, someone actually had their head split open. Even so, it must have been a pretty rousing moment.f) Trafalgar Okay, I should probably stop. So much to soak up. :)
