On January 30, 1649, England's King Charles Stuart was beheaded on the orders of the traitor Oliver Cromwell, the final act of the Second English Civil War. This act of unimaginable regicide has reverberated throughout history, as evidenced by the many yearly commemorations of England's unjustly murdered king. We will gather not only to remember his life, but also to celebrate his example of steadfast courage, faith, and devotion to duty. We hope you'll join us.
