Event Description

Guy Fawkes

November 5 1605

Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding and preparing to alight the explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords

This was timed for the opening of a new session of Parliament.

King James I survives.

On 31 January 1606, Fawkes and three other conspirators were  hanged and quartered.

His effigy is traditionally burned on a bonfire, commonly accompanied by fireworks. 

Americans, always ripe for a joke and a little mayhem and sedition, will appreciate a remark by James Sharpe, professor of history at the University of York, who has described how Guy Fawkes came to be toasted as "the last man to enter Parliament with honest intentions."
