I think Rev W F Marshalls poem says it all: Hi Uncle Sam!When freedom was denied you,And imperial might defied you,Who was it stood beside youAt Quebec and Brandywine?And dared retreats and dangers,Red-coats and Hessian strangers,In the lean, long-rifled Rangers,And the Pennsylvania Line!Hi! Uncle Sam!Wherever there was fighting,Or wrong that needed righting,An Ulsterman was sightingHis Kentucky gun with care:All the road to Yorktown,From Lexington to Yorktown,From Valley Forge to Yorktown,That Ulsterman was there!Hi! Uncle Sam!Virginia sent her brave men,The North paraded grave men,That they might not be slavemen,But ponder this with calm:Who was the first to face the Tory,And the first to lift Old Glory,Made your war an Ulster story:Think it over, Uncle Sam! best regardsRobertwww.ulsterancestry.com >> >> > They were the bulb of the confederacy in the American Civil War.> >> > ----- Original Message ----- > > From: "John Erwin" <>> > To: <>> > Sent: Monday, November 24, 2008 3:19 PM> > Subject: [S-I] Scotch-Irish soldiers> >> >> >> Does anyone know the % of Scotch-Irish soldiers in the American Rev.
