Indian independence leader Mohandas Gandhi (. Mahatma Gandhi) was impressed by Thoreau's arguments. In 1907, about one year into his first satyagraha campaign in South Africa , he wrote a translated synopsis of Thoreau's argument for Indian Opinion , credited Thoreau's essay with being "the chief cause of the abolition of slavery in America", and wrote that "Both his example and writings are at present exactly applicable to the Indians in the Transvaal ."  He later concluded:
In reprisal the IRA assassinated pro-Treaty TD (member of parliament) Sean Hales and in revenge for that, four IRA leaders who had occupied the Four Courts – Rory O’Connor, Liam Mellows, Joe McKelvey and Richard Barret – were summarily executed. In all between 77 and 81 republicans were officially executed and another 100-150 assassinated or summarily killed in the field. The worst instance of this occurred in Kerry, where, in reprisal for a bomb attack in March 1923 that killed 5 National Army soldiers, within a week, 17 prisoners were killed in three separate incidents after being tied to landmines which were then detonated.
The dress parade gradually made its way to the wharf and boarded the De Molay bound for Port Royal Island, South Carolina. There the regiment reported to the Department of the South. Once the men arrived, however, reality set in when they were relegated to manual labor. Not until June 8, when Shaw and his men joined Colonel James Montgomery and the black troops of his 2nd South Carolina Colored Volunteers on an ‘expedition’ to Georgia, did they see any action, and that was during a pointless raid on the small town of Darien. After plundering the 100 or so residences, three churches, the market-house, courthouse, and an academy, Montgomery ordered Darien set afire. Begrudgingly, Shaw directed one of his companies to torch the town. Fanned by a high wind, the flames eventually destroyed everything but a church and a few houses.
