Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Catharine Macaulay (born Catharine Sawbridge and, by the time of her death, Catharine Graham) (2 April 1731 - 22 June 1791) was an English historian. Catharine Macaulay was a daughter of John Sawbridge of Olantigh, a landed proprietor from Wye, Kent. The History of England from the Accession of James I to that of the Brunswick Line (eight volumes, 1763-1783). Macaulay believed that the Anglo-Saxons possessed freedom and equality with representative institutions, lost at the Norman Conquest. The history of England, in Macaulay's view, was the story of the struggle of the English to win back their rights that were crushed by the "Norman yoke." Whigs welcomed the first volumes of the History as a Whig answer to David Hume's "Tory" History of England.show more
