As CharlesI's army marched on the capital in the autumn of 1642,Nehemiah Wallington, a wood-turner living near LondonBridge, wrote in his journal, 'those cruel cavilers doeso plonder & pillage & commit Rapin & use such crueltythat the poore people are caused to fly from house andhome to save their children'. Most Londoners shared hisfears that city would be pillaged and burnt by the king'ssupporters, who had been vilified in the London press andfrom the pulpits. Londoners had willingly joined the Earlof Essex's army that summer but had failed to stop theadvance of the king's army. The capture and sack ofBrentford, so close to their city, confirmed their worstfears, for their own safety and that of their families.London would be next. At Turnham Green the Civil War thathad pitched Englishman against Englishman came to London. Codice inventario libreria ABE_book_usedgood_1848688474
