Major General Massey: Hero, Traitor or Opportunist?

£8/£7 concession

Major General Sir Edward Massey sprang to fame as Gloucester’s Parliamentary Governor during its siege by Charles I in 1643. But he later fell out with those who wanted to run the country, fought for the Royalists at the Battle of Worcester, plotted for the Restoration, returned with Charles II and became a controversial MP for Gloucester in the 1660 Restoration Parliament. Today’s MP for Gloucester tells Massey’s story and asks if his predecessor was a hero, traitor or opportunist in a fast changing world.
