The Crusade and the Crusades of Today
The year was 1095 and the Arabs had for over 400 years been controlling the sacred land, Palestine. Arabs at that time wasn't called Arabs but they where called Mohammedans or "the unfaithful" by the Christian people. The Arabs where starting to be more intolerant then before even though they've been controlling Jerusalem for over 400 years. The Christian pilgrims had always been allowed to visit the sacred grave of Jesus, but not any more. This out raged the Christians and the pope declared a holy war by travelling to France preaching to the highnesses.
The eastern roman emperor Alexjos helped the crusade by getting gear and boats to travel across the sea to the west Asian side. When they arrived to the city of Nicaea they saw the high walls and their catapults made no matter against the heavy walls. They defeated one army of mounted soldiers swiftly but then again the high walls. So then again the crusade asked the emperor Alexjos for help.
