Event Details

Oliver_Cromwell_by_Samuel_CooperIn this talk Howard will attempt to dispel many myths about his nine times great grandfather, Oliver Cromwell, most of which originated from Edward Hyde, historian and friend of both Charles I and Charles II… views which held sway for over 200 years.

In the last 140 years, more so recently, many historians have reassessed the facts and rehabilitated Oliver Cromwell’s character, and his contribution to our modern democracy.

The battle of Worcester, the final decisive battle of the so-English Civil War, arguably Cromwell’s greatest tactical victory before the Commonwealth and Protectorate held sway for 9 years, is well worth analysis.
