On this day in 1429...the march toward Reims began! Here we see the mention of Brother Richard, too!

The French army left Gien on 29 June on the march toward Reims, and accepted the conditional surrender of the Burgundian-held city of Auxerre on 3 July. Other towns in the army's path returned to French allegiance without resistance. Troyes, the site of the treaty that tried to disinherit Charles VII, was the only one which put up even brief opposition. The army was in short supply of food by the time it reached Troyes. But the army was in luck: a wandering friar named Brother Richard had been preaching about the end of the world at Troyes and convinced local residents to plant beans, a crop with an early harvest. The hungry army arrived as the beans ripened.[46] Troyes capitulated after a bloodless four-day siege.[47]

it's officially summertime...pay attention...it was summer when Joan first heard her voices at 13!!

"When I was thirteen years old, I had a Voice from God to help me govern my conduct. And the first time I was very fearful. And came this Voice, about the hour of noon, in the summer-time, in my father's garden; I had not fasted on the eve preceding that day. I heard the Voice on the right-hand side, toward the church; and rarely do I hear it without a brightness. This brightness comes from the same side as the Voice is heard. It is usually a great light. The Voice was sent to me by God and, after I thrice heard this Voice, I knew that it was the voice of an angel. This Voice has always guarded me well and I have always understood it clearly."
