The Battle of Fontenoy free pdf Excerpt from The Battle of Fontenoy: A Historical Poem The long record of coercion and blood-guiltiness on the part of the English government in Ireland, extending as it does from generation to generation and century to century, is so appalling, no one who takes the trouble to examine into it can wonder why the Irish people do not love English rule, and no one can wonder at the exertions made by the authorities to exclude Irish history from the schools. Few, outside the official circle, have any accurate knowledge of the atrocious crimes perpetrated wholesale in the name of law, the authentic records not being easily available to ordinary students, and those within the circle have been anxious for obvious reasons to conceal the truth. Ireland for centuries had to submit to the most sanguinary massacres, wholesale confiscation, and plunder. To seek a parallel for the massacres of the Irish Catholic people it is necessary to go back to the persecution of the early Christians under the pagan empire of Rome. They were turned into the Colosseum and ravenous wild beasts, lions, and tigers, let loose amongst them. Ireland was one vast Colosseum with human wild beasts preying upon her people with relentless fury. When the people fled into the woods endeavouring to escape from their persecutors, the furze brakes where they tried to shelter themselves were surrounded and set on fire, and when thus forced to leave their places of concealment, they were driven back into the flames by the weapons of their merciless assailants. Infants were carried aloft writhing on the bayonets of brave Englishmen. Women big with child were brutally hanged. The poor people were tied back to back and cast into the rivers or into the sea in multitudes. Wexford, Drogheda, Kilkenny, Cashel, Island Magee, Newry, Clonmel, and innumerable other places were scenes of the indiscriminate slaughter of men, women, and children, under circumstances of the utmost barbarity.
