    In Scotland, agitation culminated in an attempted general strike and an abortive workers' uprising which was crushed by government troops in what became known as the 'Radical War' of 1820. One of the three ‘Radical Martyrs’ executed for their part in the Scottish insurrection was Rifleman John Baird.
