“In 1685, James became the next king. Then William and Mary overthrew King James. The Glorious Revolution had begun. William III and Mary gave the people back the right to assemble and freedom of worship. As monarchs, they accepted the English Bill of Rights. This important bill protected the people against cruel and unusual punishment.” (cp 2023)
