Gordon Riots

Active selection:    
During Lord North's term of office, London spent five days at the mercy of a mob. Finally, on June 7, 1780, the king himself ordered the army to fire on rioters who were looting in the city. The uprising was suppressed, the leaders brought to justice. Original artwork for the illustration on p23 of L&L issue no. 187 (14 August 1965).
