The website IrishAmerica.com recently published an insightful article on the names of the Irish men whose signatures featured on USA Declaration of Independence.
With names such as Lynch, Carroll and Taylor the article profiles those of Irish descent who defiantly signed their names on this historic document with the article stating:
“Among the citizens who signed what could have been a death warrant, were at least eight Irish Americans, three born in Ireland.”
This makes for a very interesting read on these figures and the writer, Brendan Patrick Keane proudly & rightly states:
“My love of country, the United States, and of my heritage (Irish) converge in that document because I acknowledge the Irish who risked their lives to sign it.”
