White Rose Day

June the 10th is White Rose Day,  a significant day for Yorkists, Jacobites, and assorted other legitimists, royalists, and traditional folk.  Charles Coulombe will tell you all you need to know about it here.

And if that weren't enough on June 10 in 1549 the men of Cornwall and Devon rose in the Prayer Book Rebellion, preferring their old service in Latin to the new one "which", they said, "is like a Christmas game."

And on this day in 1540 Thomas Cromwell was arrested for treason.  Better late than never.
