this day in horrible history 

↳ 10 June 1338 AD - William Montagu, Earl of Salisbury withdraws his army after unsuccessfully besieging Dunbar Castle for five months, leaving it in the sole possession of Lady Agnes Randolph “Black Agnes”. Black Agnes is commemorated in a ballad which attributes these words to Montagu:-

"She kept a stir in tower and trench, 
That brawling, boisterous Scottish wench,
Came I early, came I late
I found Agnes at the gate.”
