A compelling account of one of the darkest days in Britain's social history. On 16th August 1819, a strong force of yeomanry and regular cavalry charged into a crowd of more than 100,000 workers who had gathered on St Peter's Field in Manchester for a meeting about Parliamentary reform. This violent, startling event became known as Peterloo, one of the darkest days in Britain's social history. This book provides a revealing narrative account of the events leading up to Peterloo, starkly describes the actions of that fateful day and examines its aftermath.
