The Late Lord Frederick Cavendish 
1882 
  
Collection of Brad Feuerhelm 
 
LL/18890 
  
Lord Frederick Cavendish was brutally murdered while strolling in Phoenix Park, Dublin on 6 May 1882 by political agitators whose interest was apparently in killing Cavendish's companion Thomas Henry Burke. Though Burke's assassination was planned in advance, Cavendish had arrived the same day in Ireland and was killed as a byproduct of sectarian political violence. Popular myth has it that he was stabbed to death by a group of assailants. While there were a group of men present and partaking, their method was more sinister. Instead of stabbing their intended victims the group brought surgical knives and slashed the victims many times to promote a slower suffering and eventual death by bleeding.
