In our next installment we will start Chapter 1 chronicling the childhood of Lamport in Wexford circa 1619. You can have a sneak peak of this above this very article. Looking back to Lamport’s Ireland of childhood we hope to resolve how such an essentially selfish character in pursuit of the progress of his own career, wealth and status became such a proponent for freedom. We start drawing parallels between the land displaced Irish Catholic class of the 1600’s and the Native Mexicans under Spanish colony rule.
Also, below, you can see of Cormac Hughes’s line work from the Prologue.
