  Chartism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The depression of 1841–1842 led to a wave of strikes in which Chartist activists were to the fore and demands for the charter were included alongside economic demands.
The Chartists also stood in general elections, from the election of 1841 to the election of 1859, and O'Connor was elected in the general election of 1847.
In 1854 Chartist demands were put forward by the miners at the Eureka Stockade on the gold fields at Ballarat, Victoria, Australia in 1854.

Chartist activity declined in the mid-1840s as conditions improved but the economic difficulties of 1847-48 revived the mass movement.
Chartists, as had their radical forebears, blamed “Old Corruption” for their poverty – a greedy and self-interested governing elite which taxed the wealth of the ”producing classes” to maintain its extravagant and parasitic lifestyle.
The Chartists, therefore, sought political redress and were strengthened in their demand for political power by the nature of the 1832 Reform Act and its aftermath.

 The Historian: Women in the Chartist Movement. (book reviews) @ HighBeam Research   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Perhaps the most disappointing feature of Women and the Chartist Movement is that the author decided on the limited and circumscribed nature of female Chartism long before her research was carried out.
Chartist political economy, with its emphasis on the home market and its attack on the profits derived from commercial exchange and speculation, involved a radical defense of the household against the vicissitudes of underemployment and the principle of less eligibility enshrined in the new Poor Law.
The later involvement of female Chartists in the co-operative movement and in emigration schemes suggests a continued preoccupation with this alternative political economy, not a retreat into separate spheres.

These events had given great heart to the Chartist leaders, although they were already much encouraged by the election to Parliament, in July 1847, of their most popular leader, Feargus O'Connor.
The authorities had viewed this campaign with great concern, and some of the propertied classes had come to believe that the Chartists intended revolution, even though the Movement's leaders always emphasized their commitment to peaceful protest.
The government's concern led to Queen Victoria being dispatched to the Isle of Wight for her safety, and the Duke of Wellington - with thousands of soldiers and special constables - was brought in to defend London.

 Journal of Social History: A united people? Leaders and followers in a chartist locality, 1838-1848
One way of exploring the problem of democratic leadership in Chartist politics (and its consequences for the movement) is to create a collective biography of a single Chartist locality and to examine the dynamics of the relationship there between leaders and followers.
Within the movement, the relationship between the "true Chartists" and "the multitudes" turned on the issues of radical commitment and intellectual and cultural difference; this complicated and at times uneasy relationship profoundly influenced the political fortunes and final fate of Chartism there and elsewhere.
Their names and information about their Chartist careers have been culled from the columns of the Chartist and local newspaper press and the various files of the Home Office and Treasury Solicitor's papers as well as records of the Palatinate of Lancaster.

The Chartists obtained one and a quarter million signatures and presented the Charter to the House of Commons in 1839, where it was rejected by a vote of 235 to 46.
The Chartists' demands, at the time, seemed radical; those outside the movement saw the unrest and thought of the French Revolution and The Reign of Terror.
