Although not technically a battle, Lancashire’s list is added to by the Peterloo Massacre or the Encounter of St Peter’s Fields. Here, in August 1819, a gathering of around 60,000 people campaigning for universal suffrage and other reforms was brutally broken up by government cavalry, who killed at least 15 and wounded hundreds. It is sometimes called the Battle of Peterloo in ironic reference to the Battle of Waterloo four years earlier.
