What is this all about?

Page 72 you can scroll or drag the page down to page 72. It talks about the town of Caggiano and lists several men. Who were these men, and does it give a year?

The start of that section (page 68) is labeled "Tentativi di Rivoluzione nel 1828" [Attempts at Revolution in 1828], and the Front Cover identifies the book as "I Martiri per la Liberta Italia della Provencia di Salerno dall'Anno 1820 al 1857" [Martyrs for the Freedom of the Italian Province of Salerno from the Year 1820 to 1857]. These combined should give a feel for who the men are; type the text of interest on page 72 in to translate.google.com or another online translator for fuller details.

My guess is that 1828 should be considered the default year for events in that section, with some paragraphs describing events related to 1828's revolution attempts that occurred in other years.

Unfortunately, I can't see the book...maybe it's not available to Italian users :-(
