Description

Vintage engraving from 1861 showing a riot caused by the closing down of the radical newspaper The North Briton. The North Briton issue number 45 (April 23, 1763) is the most famous issue of the paper. It criticized a royal speech in which King George III praised the Treaty of Paris ending the Seven Years' War. Wilkes was charged with libel (accusing the King of lying), and imprisoned for a short time in the Tower of London. Wilkes challenged the warrant for his arrest and seizure of his paper, eventually winning the case. His courtroom speeches started the 'Wilkes and Liberty!' cry, popular slogan for freedom of speech and resistance to power.
