Moving beyond oral culture, this chapter identifies a rich vein of what is referred to as mis-commemoration after the Restoration: the failure to live up to the government’s expectations of behaviour on the anniversaries of the regicide (30 January) and the Restoration (29 May). Various explanations are offered for mis-commemoration, such as dissenting quibbles with episcopacy and Anglican worship, the extent to which the days accentuated political and religious protest, concerns about the extent to which the anniversaries were used to lambast Dissenters, and, drawing on previous chapters, disagreement about the Royalist interpretations of the recent past to which the days lent themselves.
