After your father's murder, you were orphaned...

Enniskillen Boer War Memorial..

Is a tall stone obelisk upon a square plinth..It stands on a three-step base in a paved area in Gaol Square, near Enniskillen Castle..The first Enniskillen castle was built on this site by Hugh Maguire in the 16th century and now houses the Fermanagh County Museum and the regimental museum of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards.. The regiment was formed in 1922, as the 5th/6th Dragoons, at Cairo, Egypt by the amalgamation of the 5th Dragoon Guards (Princess Charlotte of Wales's) and the 6th (Inniskilling) Dragoons - Henry Hartigan VC (Irish: Annraoi Ó hArtagáin; March 1826 – 29 October 1886) was born Drumlea, Enniskillen, County Fermanagh and was an Irish recipient of the Victoria Cross..

Surely you read about the princess?..

Da'at... eternal punishment..for.. anyone..who..opens.. this..casket..

The Second Boer War (11 October 1899 – 31 May 1902) was fought between the British Empire and two Boer states, the South African Republic (Republic of Transvaal) and the Orange Free State, over the Empire's influence in South Africa..The complex origins of the war resulted from more than a century of conflict between the Boers and Britain, but of particular immediate importance was the question as to who would control and benefit most from the very lucrative Witwatersrand gold mines..But it was not until 1886 that the massive wealth of the Witwatersrand would be uncovered..News of Gold spread rapidly and reached Cecil Rhodes in Kimberley.. Rhodes purchased the first batch of Witwatersrand gold from Bantjes for £3000..His De Beers Diamond company, formed in 1888, retains its prominence into the 21st century..Irish American academic Carroll Quigley believed that the Round Table Group was the front for a secret society set up by Cecil Rhodes named the Society of the Elect..The Round O is in Enniskillen within walking distance of the town centre, including the Ulsterbus station - The 5th hole at Craigie Hill Golf Club in Perth, Scotland is called Spion Kop..

Shattered by the loss of Twin Peaks..

British casualties lie dead on the battlefield after the Battle of Spion Kop - 23–24 January 1900..

The town's name comes from the Irish: Inis Ceithleann.. This refers to Cethlenn, a figure in Irish mythology who may have been a goddess.. Local legend has it that Cethlenn (of the Crooked Teeth) was wounded in battle by an arrow and attempted to swim across the River Erne, which surrounds the island, but she never reached the other side, so the island was named in reference to her..Enniskillen was the site of several events during The Troubles, the most notable being the Remembrance Day bombing in which 11 people were killed.. Bill Clinton opened the Clinton centre in 2002 on the site of the bombing..The Provisional Irish Republican Army claimed responsibility for the attack.. It is believed that a military parade was the intended target - The 13th hole of the Launceston Golf Club, Tasmania, Australia is called Spion Kop... will not remember what I show you now, and yet I shall awaken memories of love..and crime..and death..There are still 2 stalkers out there..Who do you think will make the next kill?..
