In early 1918, WW1 was still going and England was running short of troops. While it had brought in compulsory conscription to England it faced heavy resistance from Ireland which was part of the UK at that time. So much so that they created a Committee to oppose it.
Re-published here is the historical document, "The Case for Ireland Re-Stated, To the President of the United States of America. With Explanatory Historical Points", which is both the resolution made at the Mansion House by the Lord Mayor of Dublin and delegates and also the delegation's subsequent address to the President of the United States of America, Woodrow Wilson. The Mansion House Conference of 18th April 1918 was convened to formulate a plan of campaign to resist compulsory military conscription in Ireland. The delegates, in agreement with the Catholic Bishops of Ireland, formulated a pledge of anti-conscription that was taken by millions of Irish men and women at Catholic Church on Sunday 21st April.
The Case for Ireland Re-Stated is a copy of Lawrence O'Neill, the Lord Mayor of Dublin's letter to Woodrow Wilson, together with explanatory historical notes written by Crawford Hartnell. This historical pamphlet also includes a facsimile of the American Declaration of Independence and photographs of the nine members of the Anti-Conscription Committee.
