Terminology for Searching

  • Realize that the name "Peterloo Massacre" didn't appear right away and may not have been used consistently until later. 
  • Try searching for just "Peterloo" without including "massacre."
  • Try searching for "St. Peter's Field" and limit the Date range to a specific number of weeks, months, or years after the event.
