The Battle for Gloucester

the main battle


The battle takes place over the 3 days of the bank holiday. Saturday is the first barrage. The king meets with Robert Massie to ask the city to surrender. The largest guns fire a barrage at the city walls, and then Charles 1st arrives. His herald read out the proclamation, and Gloucester rejects it. The King, then proceeds with a second barrage.
