Main People; Robert Catbesy- leader Guy Fawkes- Explosive Expert

What Happened was it was a big set up against the Catholics. It was so that Spanish would shut up. This was because many things happened that points towards a Conspiracy against the catholics this was because it would shut them up too. This was because there was no gunpowder records that year and then how did the get so close to house of Parliament when one of the guys are on a warning.Then why did Robert Castbesy when his was caring a cross and tried to turn himself in.

Civil War

This was caused by King Charles and not giving the Parliament the power they wanted and this caused arguments then the tried to aersest 5 senoir MP's. This what started a Civil war that lasted for for 5 years and so many new revelation like the first paid and professional army called the New model army this is helped the Parliamentarian win the war. This meant the Royalist lost the war because of this smart scheme.

The army was different this is because you could be the poorest man in the world yet you then you could became general because you are smart.
