This chapter discusses the start of the revolution in Ireland. It explains that the government's purge of Ulster was progressively extended to other counties and the United Irishmen decided to abandon the old policy of waiting for the French support without informing Theobald Wolfe Tone and started the rising on June 17, 1898. The French Directory initiated plans for a new Irish expedition on June 25 but it was frustrated by major delays and the rebellion failed.
