The French Revolution lit a spark in Scotland, inspiring radicals and working people, uniting them in opposition to the King. Leading radicals like Thomas Muir were transported to Botany Bay. But the radicals fought back and formed the United Scotsmen, seeking widespread political reform. MP Kenny MacAskill’s Radical Scotland meticulously details this period. In April 1820, a series of dramatic events exploded around Glasgow, central Scotland and Ayrshire. 60,000 weavers and other workers went on strike demanding political reform and better living conditions. In One Week in April Maggie Craig paints an intense portrait of these momentous events.
