My apologies for today's late and meager installment. I have been extremely distracted by the impending holidays and all the various errands and tasks that revolve outward from the 25th of December like tentacles on an octopus.
Also, my apologies to anyone who tried to access the site yesterday and were unable to. Apparently Squarespace (my hosting service) is suffering from a series of denial-of-service attacks. Hopefully that will be cleared up soon.
Anyways, here is a very quick summary of the Wars of the Roses, for those of you who don't feel like reading all three parts of Henry VI. I covered the highlights.
