June 30, 1997 is a day that will forever live in the minds of Harry potter fans world wide. On this day Harry Potter gets a note from Dumbledore, telling him they are to seek out a Horcrux. While on the way to the Headmaster’s Tower, Harry meets Sybill Trelawney, who reveals to him that Severus Snape was the one who overheard the Prophecy and told part of its contents to Voldemort, and thus was, to some degree, responsible for the the Potters’ murders. Harry travels with Dumbledore to a seaside cave and retrieves the false Horcrux, while attacked by Inferi. Harry and Dumbledore return to Hogwarts, Dumbledore is confronted by Draco Malfoy and Death Eaters atop theAstronomy Tower. A battle has ensued downstairs. Severus Snape kills Albus Dumbledore, on the latter’s instruction. McGonagall and the Heads of House consider closing the school
