Excerpt from The Ulster Land War of 1770: The Hearts of Steel
Now that Ireland is beginning to have her own history given to her by her own writers, in her own way, I deem the time opportune for giving this work to our folk. If it has any interest for other peoples in other lands, affecting them in their views and opinions of Ireland's history and circum stances, my pleasure will be added to. Still, I would rather one of Ulster breed Should know the history of his own province than that a hundred from afar Should know it. I would that he Should feel the blood coursing through his own veins to be of the same blood that pulsed in the hearts of those who fought so valiantly for the right to live on the land he now tills without fear or restraint - the same blood that was Shed in exile at Bunker's Hill and Yorktown, opposing the same force of iniquity that had been striven against in Ballynure or Templepatrick or Carnmoney. A wider field and a broader enterprise gave strong arms and stout hearts full sc0pe for a fight for freedom, and thus a new republic in the west was brought to life and an obstinate tyranny driven forth.
