History of England, from the Accession of James the Second, vol1, chapter 05 parts 7-9
History of England (Audio Book), from the Accession of James the Second, vol1, chapter 05 by Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800-1859) This chapter of Macaulay's, History of England is concerned, for a large part, with insurrection against James II and his manoeuverings to suppress these. Argyle has been sheltering in Holland and returns to raise an army against James. Although brave and quick witted, he was no leader of men and the army became a confused rabble and were dispersed. Argyle was captured and died bravely. Monmouth had also been sheltering in Holland and he landed at Lyme and declared himself king on 20th June 1685. He was defeated at the battle of Sedgemoor and eventually caught and executed. Monmouth is a fine romantic and of course ultimately tragic figure. The chapter comes to an end with the Bloody Assizes and the very bloody Judge Jeffries. The History of England from the Accession of James the Second The History of England from the Accession of James the Second (1848) is the full title of the five volume work by Lord Macaulay (1800--1859) more generally known as The History of England. It covers the period from 1685 to 1702, encompassing the reign of James II, the Glorious Revolution, the coregency of William and Mary, and up to William III's death. Macaulay's approach to writing the History was innovative for his period. He consciously fused the picturesque, dramatic style of classical historians such as Thucydides and Tacitus with the learned and factual approach of his 18th century precursors such as Hume, following the plan laid out in his own earlier "Essay on History" (1828)
