The Scottish Insurrection of 1820

£10.99

Product description

April 1820. The last armed uprising on British soil, intent on severing the Union and establishing a radical Scottish republic ended in executions, imprisonments, transportations and 85 trials for high treason. yet despite its political and social importance, the story of this working-class insurrection vanished from the historical record for 150 years.
The result of meticulous research, this book restores the Radical Rising to its rightful place in Scottish history. It offers an incisive analysis of the rising itself and the events which led up to it, vividly recapturing the desperation of the people, the extraordinary heroism of the radical leaders John Baird and Andrew Hardie, and the savagery with which the movement was crushed by the forces of Lord Liverpool's reactionary government.
