A review of review of the movie oliver cromwell

Cromwell and Fairfax are shown bringing troops into the House of Commons and declaring that Cromwell now has a majority. What evidence is there for a massacre of civilians? Cromwell—one of the few politicians to retain a military command when the New Model was set up—was "Lieutenant-General", second-in-command, and commander of the cavalry.

Skip was called before the Council and accused of malice, slander, presumption, lack of charity, sedition, treason, disobedience to the gospel, attacking 'the great posts, pillars and columns sustaining and holding up the commonwealth' and inviting anarchy.

For instance, in the mids, he promoted Protestant ideas to forge an alliance with German Lutheran states, but his support for the Protestant cause is too general to be accurately explained in narrow political terms.

However it was nowhere as severe and rapid a social change as during the period of Cromwell. Lieutenant-General Cromwell was away at the time and it is unclear how much he knew of the purge in advance. How did the Barebones Parliament received its nickname?
