Black ’47

 

The Irish potato famine of 1845-47 removed one forth of the Irish population to England, America or by starvation. The British Empire used the Irish basically as mercenaries in foreign wars only to return to their Irish homes to see the British Empire destroying their families, homes and export their food harvests while they were starving. A patriarch of such a family was sentenced to seven years of prison for stealing a sheep to feed his family.  This Colonel, an Irish Connaught Ranger,  seeks justice for his dead family from those men who caused their deaths.
