In my post Historic Book Acquisitions V the book pictured above was shown. This book by Christopher Lee discusses events that happened about the time of Roger Williams’ birth in 1603.
I checked out this book from the library this afternoon. I want to read more about Oliver Cromwell and his relationship with Roger Williams, so Cromwell by Antonia Fraser looked like a good starting point. I think a 700+ page biography should give me some good information.
There are some interesting connections between Oliver Cromwell and Roger Williams that I want to know more about. Hopefully some of these are covered in this biography of Cromwell.
Great Tales from English History: Joan of Arc, the Princes in the Tower, Bloody Mary, Oliver Cromwell, Sir Isaac Newton, and More by Robert Lacey is the second volume in a trilogy of books about English History.
This volume covers three hundred years starting in 1387. The book is definitely just an overview, but will give a good review of the events leading up to the early 1600’s that I am really interested in.
I also checked out the first volume of the trilogy, but will wait to read it until after I finish a few other books.
Now to do a little reading before getting some sleep.
