4th of July AD 1187: Christendom Lost Jerusalem

Taylor Marshall reminds us of a bit of fateful history:

Happy Independence Day!

On a less celebratory note, the fourth of July also marks the Battle of Hattin that took place in 1187, between the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem and the Muslim forces under Saladin. On this day King Guy of Lusignan lost Jerusalem to Muslim control.
