Thank you for the comment on my blog. I recently purchased "That's the Way it Was." Wish I had it when I wrote, "The last of the Fenians."

Most Irish-Americans know of Washington crossing the Delaware. Few, however, know of how he got to the Pennsylvania side in the first place. Four Irishmen, Moylan, Barry, Colvin & McConkey saved his army from annihilation.

Were you aware that Irish born James Smith signed the Declaration of Independence?
