Oliver Cromwell is born. An important military leader during the Puritan revolt against the policies of English King Charles I, Cromwell will be zealous in his Christian beliefs.

He even has his troops recite the Westminster Confession before a battle and then sing the Psalms of David while marching into battle.

After Charles I is executed, Cromwell discovers that parliamentary rules are corrupt and oppress the common people. He seizes power and has himself named "Lord Protector." During his rule he supports religious tolerance. Dissenters of all types — even Quakers and Roman Catholics — are allowed meet in their churches.
