    the cellar and hidden behind firewood.

    Tresham received a letter, warning him to not

THE FIFTH OF NOVEMBER

    the Gunpowder Plot, Guy Fawkes is remembered.
  • Throughout England in towns and villages huge
    bonfires are lit, fireworks are set off and a
    stuffed model of a man, like a scarecrow, is
    burnt on the bonfire. This is to celebrate the
    failure of the Gunpowder Plot.

  • Should ever be forgot.

  • Put him on the fire
  • And there let him die
