The 1916 Proclamation
Here is the fascinating story of the document that on Easter Monday, 1916, proclaimed Ireland a republic and a sovereign independent state. This engaging story of the Proclamation, read in front of Dublin's General Post Office on that historic day, tells why it was necessary, who wrote it, who secretly printed it, and how it was distributed. Information is also provided on how to determine an authentic print. Among the photographs are the 1916 leaders, the General Post Office and surrender of Patrick Pearse. Also included are the 1916 Roll of Honor and a map of Dublin 1916.
