The Children's Crusade | 1999
During the Crusades, the Christian West fought and failed to win the Holy Land back from the Muslim East. In 1212 AD, two 12-year-old boys began their own crusade. From France to Germany, more than 20,000 children marched thousands of miles in the hopes of recapturing the Holy Land. This crusade of innocents strove to succeed where others had failed. But in an era dominated by spiritual warfare, these children would meet a bloody fate.
