In Pursuit of Liberty
Paperback. 195 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.4in. x 0.6in.On April 29, 1820, radical reformer James Stott fled England for the United States. A mining engineer, James had become concerned about the conditions of the English workers. When he participated in the infamous Manchester meeting in St. Peters Field, at which many reform advocates were killed and others arrested, James decided it would be prudent for him to leave the country temporarily. Out of concern for the safety of his pregnant wife and six children, James told no one of his departure until he was aboard the Lady Gallatin in the Liverpool harbor. In letters written between 1820 and 1823, the Stotts shared impressions of their rapidly changing circumstances. James eloquent correspondence showed him to be opinionated, insightful, obstinate, proud, and committed to the cause of liberty. His words and those of his family expressed the frustrations, anxieties, and great determination necessary to sustain them during the dramatic period that ensued.
