Wordless Wednesday - Ragland Castle

The Keep of Ragland Castle, Monmouthshire. Drawn by H. Gastineau. Engraved by H. Aldard.

“The siege and capture of Ragland Castle, by Fairfax, in August, 1646, A. D., when the library, containing a great treasure of MSS., was destroyed, has been the subject of much lamentation; and the opprobrium of the deed has been laid (as is usual) upon Oliver Cromwell, who was not in the least concerned in it.”

It has such a lonely and haunting feel to it. Thanks for NOT being entirely "wordless." I loved knowing what the picture was showing. Great WW.

For all that Cromwell wasn't a very nice person - he still gets blamed for a lot of stuff he didn't do. Too bad!

Great pic. I'll have to read up on that a little more.

Happy WW!
