The Civil War in England
1645-1649Streaming Video - 2007
England's Civil War, which was a revolution of Parliament against the King, is in many ways the model of all the successful revolutions that followed: its words echo in the words of Thomas Jefferson, of the French Estates-General, of the makers of the Russian Revolution. This program provides the background of the power struggle and the religious conflicts that led to the war, the rise to power of the Puritans and Oliver Cromwell, the pivotal battle of Naseby, the trial of Charles I and his execution, and the subsequent return to the throne of his son-this time not by the grace of God, but by the grace of Parliament.
