Peterloo and its Aftermath: A West Yorkshire Persp

Peterloo and its Aftermath: A West Yorkshire Persp


Join Professor Malcolm Chase [] for a fascinating and timely local history talk, exploring the events of 1819 at 'Peterloo'and their impact in Yorkshire. 

1820 was a year of European revolutions. The events of these twelve months were probably the greatest test any peacetime British government confronted during the nineteenth-century. He will argue that historical understanding of 1820 has long been clouded by an over-emphasis on the constitutional crisis caused by the attempt of King George IV to divorce his Queen (Caroline), while the continuing problems of post-war economic and social dislocation have been less-clearly understood.

_This talk is sponsered by the _Ford-Maguire Society []_, who are kindly providing refreshments_
