William Cuffay (1788-1870) was a leader of Chartism, which was the largest political movement ever seen in Britain. He became involved in a secret revolutionary committee which was planning an uprising in London. He was arrested, tried and convicted of levying war against the Queen. He was sentenced to transportation for life in Tasmania. He remained actively involved in politics and later pardoned, but died a pauper in the workhouse. Cuffay's reputation was immense, yet he has been forgotten over the years. This book aims to restore him as a key figure in British history.
