The Civil War was an amazing
time. England, Scotland, Ireland
and Wales were all plunged into
war and rebellion. Parliament
fought against the King in two
wars. A revolution followed and
the King was executed. England
became a republic. After that
Oliver Cromwell came to power.
Any period with all that going on must produce some interesting historical
documents (like this secret code).
