Pitts Learn About Pitt!
On Thursday morning Pitts House Captains, James and Melissa, provided the members of their house with an educational talk all about William Pitt the Younger.
We found out lots of interesting facts:
- He was born in 1759.
- He became the youngest Prime Minister in 1783 at the age of 24 and was Prime Minister during the reign of George III.
- He was in charge of the country during some major events in Europe, including the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars.
Pitt also enabled the country to pass from the old order to the new without any violent upheaval!
Let’s hope the talk inspired Pitts for a successful year ahead.
