Default Dead battery can not jump start: Honda Accord 2003

I have a 2003 Honda Accord Coupe. All of a sudden the battery died late
yesterday night, I could jump start it then though. This morning while
jump starting I made a HUGE mistake of reversing the polarity on the
batteries for a very few seconds. After realizing this mistake I made
the proper connections but the car won't start. I am not sure if I blew
anything off, I couldn't smell anything. Please help!

Open the owner's manual. In the under-hood fuse box is a pair of large
fuses. Hopefully that's all you've blown.

The car is fused against just such an occasion.

Find the main fusible link. Replace it.

That was it. I had to replace the battery fuse and ofcourse the battery
and everything is back to normal. Thanks!
