King Henry promises this by telling the soldiers that “from this day to the ending of the world, / But we in it shall be remembered” (ll. 58-59). Henry is letting his troops know that their victory (if they should win) will be so legendary that their story will be eternal. Additionally, Henry not only immortalizes the men, but he also promises them nobility, as “this day shall gentle his condition”, promising to lift the status of these men no matter what class they were born into (l. 63).To make this day even more memorable, Henry connects the battle to St. Crispin’s Day, giving the battle a significant title, making it more likely to be memorialized.
