told repeatedly that they would be slaughtered if they didn't put the beer back and fight
There's always some party-pooper isn't there!
And this incident when the mercenaries got slaughtered because of partying led to the immortal phrase "Sack the Hessians!"
Enjoy the music, that has to be international.

the whole notion that 6 provinces are not part of the history land is preposterous
without wishing to offend anyone's sensibilities, I think that most of the BBs would agree with you, if only to turn their back on the problem. Unfortunately (my choice of adjective) a large proportion of the inhabitants of Ulster feel differently. The solution, as to many of these problems, is simple and can be found about 400 years ago.
And without wishing to deny the seriousness of any of these situations, there was a joke at the time of the Falklands crisis, which stated that the deal to allow the Argentinians to take over the Malvinas fell through because the Argintinians refused to take Northern Ireland along with them.
And to correct the geographical terminology Helen and I both misused in different ways, Ulster is one of the ancient provinces of Ireland, comprising 9 counties, 6 of which are:-
oppressed under the yoke of English occupation/enjoying the benefits of being part of the United Kingdom*

a well negotiated treaty-- each side got to salvage some pride, and claim victory..
The english got a secure border for Canada-- and other stuff– (mostly a reduction of american piracy– Captain Kidd, and other new yorkers had been playing a bit free and easy with english ships..) the americans got to have some sovereignty – and ship hands could no longer be dragooned from american ships.. Some trade agreements got made, too.
