It was on this day in 1870 that the self-proclaimed Irish Republican Army marched off to war. Stopping on a country road in northern Vermont outside a brick farmhouse just yards from his intended target, General John O’Neill ordered his troops into battle: “The eyes of your countrymen are upon you.
