The Quick Story on Guy Fawkes

On November 5, 1605 Guy Fawkes charged for being in the Gunpowder plot to kill King James of 1609 King James Bible fame became Pope Day here during the French and Indian War times to war for independence.

 .

How did Guy Fawkes Day become Pope Day?

Guy Fawkes became a symbol of attacking Authority, of any kind.

.

.

Why relevant for Fort Loudoun?

This wasn’t just a battle against the French and Indians.

The French were Papists, Catholic,

agents of a monolithic devil.

.

In fact after Queen Ann died in 1714,  over fifty Catholics in line for succession were barred in favor of only Protestants, which ended up being King George I, 1714-1727.

.

.

.

And now in modern times the Fawkes face

has stylized into a mask

for anti-govt, anti-globalist, anti-establishment.

.

.

.

.

.

V for Vendetta as a comic book became a movie,

became a face for Anonymous,

the hacking group pretending to be good at hacking

and posing as cooler than Wiki-Leaks

Photo of the some of the crowd on Guy Fawkes night 5 November 2017.  Notice the one man with a harp. A special instrument designed by the holder of it.  He spoke of the harp’s mythic orgins. Look that up some day.  Something about dead turtles decaying and hearing the wind whistle through dessicated decaying muscle and cartilage.
