(p.156) Chapter 5 Marching, Meeting and Rioting: The Public Face of Orangeism
Faith, Fraternity and Fighting
Liverpool University Press

This chapter investigates the public face of Orangeism in northern England during the Victorian and Edwardian years, and briefly reviews the rise of a marching tradition in the north. It also presents a discussion of the nature of the Orange parade and of the marchers' need to engage in such ritualistic showmanship. The extent and nature of violence at the annual parades of Orangeism, and the role it played in the history of Orangeism are then outlined. The marching tradition in Liverpool was unique in size and in the timing of its development. The public face of Orangeism offered a significant symbolic message: the parade on the ‘Glorious Twelfth’ was an instrument of power as well as an expression of solidarity.
