09/24: The English Civil War

For Tuesday, Sept 24, there are two readings.

1) The first is The King’s Cabinet Opened (1645), a collection of letters by King Charles I published during the war.

2) The second is an essay by Barbara Donagan, “Atrocity, War Crime, and Treason in the English Civil War” (1994).

NOTE FROM GROUP 3:

“Well guys, we chose these readings for Tuesday with the intention of exerting mercy on your souls and adhering to a certain standard of brevity. When I took a look at the postings online, they were, to my horror and most certainly yours, lacking the page numbers. Having assigned texts that are over sixty pages long a piece, I get the feeling we may have scared a few people.

I know this is last minute, but here are the numbers for these readings so you don’t kill yourselves trying to get them read by tomorrow:

The King’s Cabinet Opened by Sir Thomas Fairfax pdf pages 6-9 (Preface) and pages 52-55 (Annotations)
 
Atrocity, War Crime, and Treason in the English Civil War by Barbara Donagan p. 1137-1141
I just wanted to make sure page numbers for the readings are clear. Sorry this is a tad belated!
Adam”
