Here is one of her letters....
"To my dear and good friends, the men of the Church, burgesses, and inhabitants of the town of Riom
Dear and good friends, you well know how the town of Saint-Pierre-le-Moutier was taken by assault, and with God's help I intend to clear out the other places which are against the King. But because so much powder, arrows, and other war materiel has been expended before the said town, and because myself and the lords who are at this town are so poorly provisioned for laying siege to La Charité, where we will be going shortly, I pray you, upon whatever love you have for the welfare and honuor of the King and all the others here, that you will aid the siege and immediately send powder, saltpeter, sulfur, arrows, strong arbalests and other materials of war. And do this so that it will not be prolonged for lack of the said powder and other war materials, and so that no one can say that you were negligent or unwilling. Dear and good friends may Our Lord protect you.
Written at Moulins, the ninth day of November. Joan"

Like many of us I find this character fascinating. What would you do if you where her today?
What is the Modern Joan of ArC like in your opinion?
