Revolution remembered

Edward Legon

Manchester University Press

This chapter shifts the focus onto seditious memories that were expressed to people who were expected to share sympathies for parliament and the Republic. These men and women are described as having formed communities of memory, that were themselves venues of solidarity in which support for parliament and the Republic was legitimised socially. Sharing seditious memories is also shown to have had the potential to foment rebellion, but also as a way of conjuring psychologically comforting senses of collective hope.
