All this is examined in my recent book, "The Casualties of Peterloo". In addition, the massacre was the work not only of Mancunians serving as volunteer cavalrymen but of regular troops, since Hussars also charged the crowd. For Mancunians and even for the development of democracy, the event is not so easy to appreciate as you suggest. To commemorate the anniversary, political cartoonist Polyp, historian Robert Poole and artist and writer Eva Schlunke have produced a graphic paperback book, Peterloo: Witnesses to a Massacre that has been hailed by Maxine Peake for its "amazing artwork" and "powerful testimony to the massacre".
