The Day Parliament Burned Down,
This review is from: The Day Parliament Burned Down (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
October 16 1834
It will be a few minutes until night time a few minutes past 6.
Mrs Mullencamp is returning from an errand and sees a flickering light under the North door of the Lords Chamber."Oh Good God" she screamed"The House of Lords is on fire"
So it began,the fight to save the House now well alight and glowing.
This is a well resourced book,skilfully written and a step by step account of the happening.It gives rise to rumours-was it an accident-arson-careless builders or divine judgement on politicians.
An excellent read but maybe more for men than women.
I received this book free through Amazon Vine Programme
