British Historical Documents: Petition of Right, 1628
I think this is good website because it tells what the petition of rights is and what happends after the petition of rights. The author named the website after him that means that he is proud of his work. You can also write him a email so you can ask him questions and visit him. Also its information is very easy to understand.
1) Sir John Eliot was a long time enemy of Buckingham.
2) On march 17 the parliament agreed to repeat the attack on Buckingham
3)The common promplty rejected the saving clause.
