Example text

Byron, an amateur painter and distant cousin of the poet. The figures of Burke on the left and Fox on the right reflect the ‘infernal nature’ of the debate over Thomas Paine’s Rights of Man which swept through the country in the 1790s.

The remnants of the ‘armed nation’ that were saved were the yeomanry, the cavalry arm of the volunteers, who were reliable under the gentry and who made a valuable addition to very limited *police resources. They, however, cannot really stand in the way of a further proposition concerning the impact of the war mobilization: that the addition of mass numbers to war was related to the addition of mass numbers to politics, specifically the great early-nineteenthcentury *petitioning campaigns on the issues of *parliamentary reform, *Catholic emancipation, and *abolitionism.
