British National Archives Research by Mike Newell

SU Maxwell School Ph.D. Candidate Mike Newell research from the British Archives in Kew, London, UK, to accompany his INSCT project “Countering Political Violence in the US & UK: The Fenians & the 1880s Dynamite Campaign,” funded by the Andrew Berlin Family National Security Research Fund. Primary sources indicate that the British responses to the Fenian “outrages” in the late nineteenth century included anger that US authorities continued to allow Fenian sympathizers in the US to publish newspapers that the British argued were inciting violence.
