Today is the anniversary of the Battle of Sisak in Croatia. The Battle of Sisak was the Croatian Siege of Vienna. On June 22nd 1593 Ban Tomas Erdődy faced off an army of 16,000 Ottomans with his army of 4,500-5,000 men. When the battle was over Erdődy lost 500 men and the Ottomans had lost over 8,000. When Erdődy saw that they were successful in battle he fell to his knees and said: “In God we have prevailed”. This photo is a painting of when Erdődy saw that the Croatian/Austrian army had won.
