Summary: In June 1817 a band of revolutionaries set out from the Derbyshire village of Penritch to march to Nottingham, robbing and press-ganging others as they went. But after only a few miles a troop of Hussars appeared and the men fled. Three of their leaders were hanged or beheaded and twenty were transported or jailed... The ambitious programme, the product of unemployment and distress and encouraged by the politically interested, never had a chance. - From preface of original publication.
