The final chapter begins with the issue that many of the men and women who expressed seditious memories did not experience the wars and revolutions to which they referred. The chapter offers explanations for this phenomenon. It does so by demonstrating that many of the younger generation who expressed seditious memories were from Covenanter, parliamentarian or republican families, or associated with Whigs and others who shared seditious memories. The chapter concludes by focusing on examples of seditious remembering in which we can glimpse the transmission of seditious memories from one generation to the next.
