The Case for Murder 6 February 1685
The case made by the Whigs that King Charles II was murdered by his brother, James Duke of York on 6 February 1685
The common misconception is the Battle of Sedgemoor was fought between a vast host of misguided peasant and a thin line of unnumbered Redcoats. That it was a forgone conclusion, but new research uncovered in my book Fighting for Liberty, has uncovered an engagement between two well matched Armies, in the early hours of July 6, 1685. It was in the balance for nearly two hours.
