Hi, I have this huge project to do at school on the English Civil War, part of the project requires us to find out what the behaviour of the Civil War soldiers was like... I have searched for AGES but can't seem to find anything... We also have to find out what others thought of them...
Please help, I am sooo stuck! :wacko:

Do you mean their behaviour on the battlefield or when they were not fighting? If it is the latter, then I suggest that you have a look at this thread which will give you some ideas. One of the best things about the excellent Spartacus Schoolnet site is that it includes lots of quotes from people of the time. This should give you a good start.

On the battlefield, sometimes they ran away or surrendered. Sometimes, like the Royalist Whitecoats at Marston Moor, they fought more or less to the last man.

Please let us know if you need any more help. Good luck with your project.
