Peterloo 1819 with voiceover
« on: Monday 09 April 18 10:01 BST (UK) »
After googling the name of the man who did the video of a bird's eye view of Victorian Manchester I came across another fascinating 3D reconstruction of the Peterloo Massacre. Here’s the link for anyone interested   https://vimeo.com/216122108

There are several other videos that are just as fascinating including a balloon ride over Victorian Manchester.

Below is the excerpt taken from the webpage describing the video.

Sequence of events on 16th March 1819 in Manchester known as the Peterloo Massacre. Created as an exercise to better understand what happened that day. Created using various written accounts and maps found on the internet. Big thank you to Historic England in the production of this animation. Also to Robert Poole for his expertise and his input on the historical accuracy of the animation. Hope you find it informative and useful.

Very good. We should always remember Peterloo and be watchful and proactive in supporting democratic principles.

I second that.
Other protests in Lancashire which ended in tragedy were Chatterton 1826 and Preston 1842.
