|What Happened in the World 100 Years Ago - 02/26/1921|
[De Valera held Irish revolt against British] The leader of the Irish independence movement, Eamon de Valera (1882-1975), had instigated a voilent rebellion against the British troops stationed in his country. And he had accused the British Parliament of allowing the troops occupying Dublin to torture prisoners, murder children and violate women. Ireland's nearest neighbors had so far completely ignored the fact that the Irish people lived under a virtual reign of terror and that the country was in a state of full-scale war against British rule. After escaping from prision two years ago, de Valera was elected President of Ireland by the Dail Eireann, the revolutionary Parliament that declared the country independent.
