The Gunpowder Plot

November 5th 1605 - Guy Fawkes & his 13 fellow Revolutionaries failed to blow up the Houses of Parliament. A day to be mourned not celebrated!

It was an ultimate act of terrorism - they were blowing up their own people as well as the ones they wanted to remove. Several hundred people would have been killed and it would have changed the whole face of the monarchy.
