I have studied in St.Louis and America is my second country, as English is my second language.

I think that a civil war is a war fought by people of the same nationality, like the American Civil War or the fighting between Italian partisans and Italian Fascists in 1943-45. I don't think this was the case of Ireland.

I think you mean Northern Ireland.

@Bobby

....the Irish uprising could be considered a civil war


Incorrect. That was a rebellion. The Irish Civil War was 1921/22.

Sten-Arne,
LOL....That was the best answer of all :)

Sten-Arne your Sweedish.......hmmmmmmm...come to think of it, i wonder did your ancestors head down toward Ireland there about a thousand years ago in Long Boats. We have many reports of guys invading our Island about a thousand years ago and they were all wearing helmets with horns? Was that you by any chance? Or i suppose you will blame the Norwegians....LOL

Hmmmn, it looks like you haven't read the Book of Invasions properly. They were the Vikings from Norway, & it was 1300 years ago.

It was not me, or my Swedish roots. It was indeed the Norwegians, but then again, my mother was born in Norway :-)
