    Oliver Cromwell has always been a controversial subject in British history from regiside to religious tolerance he seemed to act on both sides of the spectrum at the same time.

Of course, that is an exaggeration. Unlike some of his friends and associates he never even visited America, although on at least two occasions he was on the point of emigrating.
