Huntingdon History Day
Oliver Cromwell, love him or loathe him, that will be discussed when Pickerings Regiment of the Sealed Knot Society support the Huntingdon History Day.
From the Organising Officer:
'Following the ransacking of the town by the vengeful Royalist Army retreating from its defeat at Naseby, a small Parliamentarian force is sent to pick up the pieces and hear petitions from the local population wanting explanation and possible compensation. The town's own MP Oliver Cromwell had headed west with the Army of Parliament to engage the Kings forces around Bristol. Did he make a mistake and why did forsake his own?'
Do you have an opinion on Oliver Cromwell, then come along and discuss it with our Members but remember, Pickerings Regiment support the Parliament Army.
