And you thought slaves were treated poorly Aug. 14 2012
By Joseph T. Moran - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great true story of how some enterprising businessmen crated the Irish in horrid conditions to take them away from Ireland during the great famine in ships that were less than sea worthy. Since they did not represent potential revenue generators like slaves did, there was no incentive to ce concerned for their safety or well being. A very nice read that doesn't tie one up in granular details.
