Who Was Humpty Dumpty?
I learned something new today... Humpty Dumpty Was not a big egg, or a fat person. Humpty Dumpty was a cannon in the Eglish Civil War! During the Siege of Colchester in 1648 Humpty Dumpty was placed on a wall next to St Mary's Church. A good shot from the Round heads damaged the wall beneath Humpty Dumpty and "he had a great fall" The Cavalliers tried to raise the gun onto another wall but he was too heavy so "all the Kings horses and all the Kings men, couldn't put Humpty together again" so now you know! look
