Although there is sometimes present day acknowledgement of enslavement of the Irish, massive enslavement of English--especially poor children--was an early foundation of the American Colonies. Your average 'cracker' or 'hill billy' is likely descended from white slaves in that early phase of mass-enslavement.
This book throws many presumptions about racism into question. It also throws the current 'consensus' theories re: race into question.
I became interested in English history when I heard several English historians talk over the radio about how Americans do not even know their own history. This sent me off digging in every book I could get my hands on looking for our history.
I've done some extensive research into my family history (approximately 30 years worth), I knew they came in from Ireland and Scotland on my father's side of the family. Everyone of them came in to the ports of Virginia. I could find no history of their old birth records - nothing. Their census records all said Virginia. Why Virginia? The writer explains all that and much more!
Mr. Hoffman II explained so many things to the reader about our history about Scottish and Irish fighting men that were taken from their lands to settle in North America. England needed money, what's more they wanted them off the soils of Scotland and Ireland. How many fighters became slaves, political prisoners, and indentured. Some signed up on their own free will but had no earthly idea what they were getting themselves into.
The horrors they had to endure was unbelievable.
When I look on web about indentured slavery in American History they made it sound like a darn vacation away from Europe for a few years! But a master is a master no matter what color he is and no matter what color the servant is.
This book explains a lot and it also makes you more aware as to why the political correct historians want this history under the rug! Read it, it is for every culture - he left no one out. It will shock you.
