    Book details


Island and New Hampshire, while the praise extended by Washington, himself, was also prompt and sincere. Gen. John Sullivan was of I rish parentage and was born at Berwick, Me., in 1740. His ancestors were of the historic Clan CS ullivan of the I rish Kingdom of Munster. The CTS ullivans in antiquity and prominence rank with the oldest and most distinguished families in Europe. I rish history for nearly a thousand years records their greatness. They have also been distinguished in France and Spain, while in the United States, John, father of the general, has been the founder of one of the most distinguished families. As early as A. D. 909, a chief of the Clan was slain in battle with the Danes. A gain, A. D. 943, in a great engagement with a Danish host in I reland the I rish forces were commanded by another lord of the Clan. During the conflict, he slew in personal combat a son of the King of Denmark. The OS ullivans have been hereditary chieftains of Beare and Bantry. They possessed the castles of A rdea, Dunkerron, and Dunboy, had various other strongholds, and for centuries could muster thousands of retainers and men-at-arms. The head of one branch of the family was styled CTS ullivan Mor: and that of another, OS ullivan Beare. At the period of the English invasion of I reland the Clan was among the most powerful in the country, and for a long period bravely kept aloft the I rish banner and unflinchingly opposed the forces of England. In Spain, theO Sullivans were Knights of St. I ago and Counts of Berehaven.
