Rate this:
In 1922 the Irish assembly approved the passage of the Anglo-Treaty, which granted Ireland independence, but stipulated that Northern Ireland would remain under the control of Great Britain. The treaty also forced Ireland to pledge allegiance to the British monarch. Eamon De Valera, leader of the Sinn Fein political party, resigned from the Dail Eireann (Irish parliament), along with all other members of the party. A civil war broke out and president William Thomas Cosgrave had De Valera imprisoned for his refusal to fulfill his parliamentary duties. De Valera was released in 1924 and founded the political party Fianna Fail, "Warrior of Ireland", which took control of the government in 1932.
