Format: Paperback
I bought this book as a present for my husband, because we are very interested in issues of freedom, especially religious freedom. As most Americans know, Puritans came to this country to be able to practice their religion without the oppression of the King of England. Many of the Puritans were fined, jailed, and even killed when they refused to become part of the Church of England and attend that church each Sunday. They also refused the King James Version of the Bible that promoted King James' own personal take on scripture for political reasons. Of course from other sources we know that the Puritans fined anyone (for example Quakers, etc.) who lived in their area and did not attend the Puritan worship services. Ironic.

We learned that many of my husband's family took part in the rebellion with Oliver Cromwell and then came to America from England to escape the death warrant that had been issued for them. We found enough information to search Ancestry.com and learned that my husband was a direct descendant of Oliver Cromwell's aunt. My husband is also a direct descendant of one of the Regicides.

In our history classes (we are in our 60's) we did not learn much about Oliver Cromwell or his connection with our family. This book helped us to understand events of that time in history. The book includes copies and excerpts of original historical documents, and through it we learned about the sacrifices many of the Puritans and members of the family made for religious freedom. History is much more interesting when it becomes personal, and when we investigate the sacrifices people made for religious freedom.
