Description

From the Movie Gods and Generals, music by Celtic Woman, "may it be."<br /> U2, "MLK"<br /> "In 1771 your founder Mr. Franklin spent three months in Ireland and Scotland to look at the relationship they had with England to see if this could be a model for America, whether America should follow their example and remain a part of the British Empire. Franklin was deeply, deeply distressed by what he saw. In Ireland he saw how England had put a stranglehold o Irish trade, how absentee English landlords exploited Irish tenant farmers and how those farmers in franklin's words "lived in retched hovels of mus and straw., were clothed in rags and subsisted chiefly on potatoes." Not exactly the American dream ... So instead of Ireland becoming a model for America, America became a model for Ireland." Bono, lead singer of U2
