Hero or Traitor?

What drives a man to become a rebel?

This is a true story about a protestant man of English descent

who ends up becoming The Commander in Chief of The

United Irishmen in 1798.

The rebellion of 1798 was one of the largest rebellions ever

in Irish history when Irishmen and women fought to gain

independence from England. It is estimated that over 30,000

people (on both sides) lost their lives in the rebellion that only

lasted about 6 months.

The rebellion was carried out by The United Irishmen which

were the forerunners to other Irish organisations that

followed, for a period of over 100 years, in the pursuit of

independence from English rule. Independence was achieved

for 26 of the 32 counties of Ireland in 1921.

This story is based on the memoirs of Joseph Holt (General

Holt). He tells the story mostly in his own words how he

ended up rebelling against the establishment that he used to

be a part of.

To some he was a hero, to others he was a traitor. You the

reader can decide for yourself!
