Let us remember Charles The Hammer Martels' fight against the barbarian savage Muslims of Islam, because it is not over. We are at war with the barbaric muslim savage today, despite what the multi-culti kool aid drinking elitists think, say or try to force on us.

Western civilization and culture is superior to the barbarian disease espoused by Islam and muslims.

As near as I can tell, I am a descendant of Charles Martel. The info came in a Saturday Evening Post article back in the 1950s.

Since the Julian calendar was in use at the time, the anniversary is actually November 1.

Today is also the anniversary of another turning point in Western civilization—the US invasion of Grenada, which, arguably, turned the tide of the Cold War.

In all seriousness, a well-remembered day. I wonder if there is any similar remembrance for Jan III Sobieski, victorious commander at the Battle of Vienna, centuries after Martel.

A fine day to celebrate by doing whatever the wife says to do, play with the dog and enjoy a glass of wine while eating a ham sandwich.

It's also St. Crispin's Day when King Henry V whipped the French....out numbered 5 to 1...at Agincourt in 1415. Welsh bowmen won the day.

Also Agincourt ( 25 October 1415 ) showing the Welsh archers on the left...and the French knights in confusion on the right:

FYI - Charles Martel’s hammer was almost certainly not a 12oz one!

As for being a descendant of Charles Martel, the most famous linkage is to his even more famous grandson, Charles the Great aka Charlemange. Given a computation of a generation every 30 years, back to 800 is 40 generations or 2^40 which basically translates to if you have a single ancestry linkage to western Europe and you can get a noticeable sunburn, say hi to g-g-g-g-g-g-g-...grandpappy.
