Peterloo protest songs and poems published together for first time

5 Jul 18

The authentic voice of nineteenth-century England is captured in a new collection of poems and ballads written in response to the 1819 Peterloo Massacre and shared in defiance of Government censorship.

Dr Alison Morgan’s new book highlights the outrage, grief, defiance and resolution felt by labouring-class people in the immediate aftermath of one of the defining events of English political history.
