arquebuses de Sancerre.

hello there!

In his book "history of the sling", Jesus "hondero" Vega Hernadez does mention a late sling episode during the religion's war in France.

It happend around 1564, as the city of Sancerre was besieged and defended by slingers.

The only other reference I read about it are here :
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histoire_du_Sancerrois
and the book
"Histoire universelle de Jacque-Auguste de Thou depuis 1543 jusqu'en 1607"

does anyone have more infos?

Thanks
