December 12th – Time Travel Series: The Irish Rebellion of 1798

This week, Brad is taking us back to 1798, to have a first person narrative of the Irish Rebellion.

This was a request from JP, who is a talented Comic Book Writer & Colorist, whose latest project, PLOUGHMAN, is on shelves now. What would life be like for a 27-year-old farmer in Ireland, in 1798? It would be a system of penal laws, desperate measures and arrangements with the French.
