2788 The Day They Killed the King, by Hugh Ross Williamson (read 7 Oct 1995) The 'day' referred to is 30 Jan 1649, the day Charles II's head was chopped off. The book is quite well-done, even though it is without a bibliography and the preface indicates that the author makes up his mind as to what happened when the evidence is conflicting. The last chapter tells of the trial and horrible execution of one of the regicides on Oct 13, 1660: Thomas Harrison. It is said one of his sons emigrated to Virginia and from him is descended the two Presidents of the United States named Harrison. This was a good book. (I later found out that all of Thomas Harrison's children died in infancy--so this 'fact' apparently was made up by the author based on incorrect 'evidence.') ( )
