1834 The Full Proceedings of the General Court Martial Held at Cork Barracks
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding
Bookplate to the front pastedown, Charles Wilson Randolph.
This military hearing was sensational, and was reported on in local Cork newspapers. It concerned Captain Augustus Wathen who had six charges pressed against him by Lieutenant-Colonel Lord Brudenell. Prior to the court martial there had been media coverage regarding personal conflict between Brudenell and Wathen. This trial gained traction due to its compelling narratives of aristocratic privilege, honour and abuse of power. Lord Brudenell was a rich aristocrat who bought his rank, and Captain Wathen earned his rank being a veteran of Waterloo. During this trial public sympathy lay with Wathen, and the trial captivated residents of Cork who attended for 18 days of evidence and cross-examination.
