Critical and Historical Essays No.1 – John Hampden

Critical and Historical Essays No.1 – John Hampden
by Thomas Babington Macaulay

A link to Lord Macaulay’s article on John Hampden in one of his most important works, hosted on the website of the World Wide School. This also includes Macaulay’s essays on John Milton, William Pitt the Elder, Clive of India and Warren Hastings.
