Today marks the 101st anniversary of the judicial murder of the bold Irish patriot, Sir Roger Casement, by the Sasanachs.
Here's to his glorious memory!
This is a royalty forum where we discuss Royalty - not traitors!
The following is from the 23 Dec 2001 issue of Northeast Magazine,
which was an insert in The Hartford (CT) Courant ["The Root (or
Route) of Treason," by Kyrie O'Connor, Page 2].
"Of course, as is often noted, one man's traitor is another man's
freedom fighter. Patrick Henry's historical references will sail
over the heads of many college grads these days. But they must
have stirred the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1765 when he
proclaimed: 'Tarquin and Caesar each had his Brutus, Charles the
First his Cromwell, and George the Third may profit by their
example. If this be treason, make the most of it.'"
