Langport 1645

 Today's anniversary. From the wiki

Following its previous success at Naseby in June, in the Battle of Langport the New Model Army under Sir Thomas Fairfax destroyed the last Royalist field army, led by Lord Goring. This Parliamentarian victory allowed them to besiege the Royalist port of Bristol, which surrendered in September.
