Siege of Acre (1291)

The Siege of Acre took place from April 6 to May 28, 1291. The Egyptian Mamluks under Sultan Al-Ashraf Khalil broke into the city on May 18 and captured the city of Acre except for the Templar Castle after a devastating street fight. The Knights Templar managed to withstand the attacks of the Mamluks until May 28 when the Mamluks stormed the walls and captured the last Crusader stronghold in the Holy Land.
