10/14/1593: death of Arthur, 14th Lord Grey de Wilton (Artegal)(born 1536)
His father, Bill, was a winner in the Battle of Child #172. Art ran Ireland for a while and was defeated in the Battle of
Glenmalure in Wicklow. This really hurt his feelings so he went on to commit enough attrocities to make up for it.

        Lift, MacCahir Og, your face
        Brooding o'er the old disgrace
        That Black Fitzwilliam stormed your place
        And drove you to the fen.
        Grey said victory was sure
        Soon the tyrant he'd secure
        Until he met at Glenmalure
        Fiach McHugh O'Byrne

                "Follow me up to Carlow" per Dick Gaughan
ALSO:
President Bill Clinton awarded Pete Seeger the National Medal of Arts 10/14/1994. This was a fine thing but a tad ironic.

It's also the anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, 1066.

Well I sang my song at Hastings battle,
To praise the deeds of Charlemagne,
I sang of Arthur and of Roland,
That men remember their great fame
I sang to rouse a sinking nation,
That king and men might never yield,
But when the battle cry was over,
They all lay dead on Hastings field.

(From The Minstrel, can't remember author)
