The Battle of Kosovo

The Battle of Gazimestan or Amselfeld was fought in 1389, Northwest from Priština, between the Serbs (or a Balkan coalition: see comment below; and Wikipedia, under "Army composition", footnote 6) and the Ottoman Empire. A memorial marks the site of Serbia’s greatest national shrine, Kosovo Polje, the Field of Blackbirds. The battle is celebrated on St Vitus' Day, June 28. Four months from now.
