Irish Rebels and Revolutionaries

How did Irish republicanism evolve from the ideals of the United Irishmen in the 1790s to the formation of the Irish Free State in 1922? This period saw multiple uprisings and campaigns of violence against British rule by Irish rebels at home and abroad. As the cause of Irish freedom was embraced by Irish-American immigrants at least as intensely as Irishmen and women back home, the role of Irish America will be an essential aspect of the course.
