Happy Birthday Oliver Cromwell!
Today is the birthday of Oliver Cromwell, an English Puritan who led the fight for religious and political freedom against Charles I. This war later became known as the English Civil War. He was a true hero, who had strong faith, courage and principles.
A great movie that depicts the life of Oliver Cromwell is “Cromwell“. This is a wonderful film that shows the life of Cromwell as well as his sacrifices and seemingly insurmountable odds. After I watched the movie I did some quick research and it looked like the film is historically accurate. Oliver Cromwell, in today’s history, is often degraded and looked down upon as ambitious and a tyrant. If you are interested in reading more about the life of Oliver Cromwell the book Reformation and Revival has a great chapter on his life.
