At the close of the battle his horse was shot from under him and he was severely flesh wounded. He remained on the field that day and stayed to fight the next day only by concealing his wounds.

I just wanted to take a minute today to wish my wonderful Aunt Yvonne (The Kids Great-Aunt Yvonne) a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We hope she has a GREAT day! Maybe Uncle George and my cousin Alan will do something sweet for her (like let her watch the WWE Network all day)!
