Rebellion, War, and Revolution

First off, get outside this weekend; Saturday looks to be gorgeous. On Sunday, come back to this email, and do your reading for next week, which is:

Kishlansky, Chapter 6 ("Rebellion and Civil War"), p. 144-157; Chapter 7 ("Civil War and Revolution"); associated webnotes, http://history.wisc.edu/sommerville/361/361-26.htm and http://history.wisc.edu/sommerville/361/361-27.htm In addition, for primary material, read The Root and Branch Petition at here and The Solemn League and Covenant at here For those of you interested in military history, check out a good description of the Storming of Leicester and the Battle of Naseby at this excellent site.

Having read the primaries well will give you a good context and situate you particularly well for the subsequent week, when we meet in Special Collections, Memorial Library.
