Cromwell viewed such conciliatory policy as necessary, but in some ways the Rump  Parliament proved too conservative for Cromwell's tastes. He was particularly impatient  with the Rump Parliament's failure allow religious freedom for all Protestant sects. Quite  suddenly, Cromwell put a violent end to the Rump Parliament on April twenty, 1653. In a  fiery speech he gave that day, Cromwell insulted many of the MPs and accused them of  corruption. He then ordered armed men to clear the members of Parliament out of the  chamber. On April thirty, Cromwell announced that the state would now be administered  through a ten-man Council of State. This was the first major step toward Cromwell's dictatorship, although in the following  weeks he specifically denied that that he wished to establish any sort of autocracy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
