New this month Factual error: Drummond's assassin is said to have been a farmer who was angry about the repeal of the Corn laws. He was actually Daniel M'Naghten, a woodturner who was found not guilt by reason of insanity and was under the delusion he was being persecuted by the Tory Party. Drummond did not take a bullet for Peel. Peel was not with him at the time. M'Naghten mistook him for Peel as he left Peel's house and shot him in the back.
