About me

Location United States
Introduction Joyce, Jnr. is a nom de plume inspired by a little-known Bostonian, a Revolutionary hero who stopped the 18h century version of Conservatives in their tracks before they could undermine the American Revolution. These were the Tories who were traitorously working behind the lines with our British enemies, stopped with the All_American institution of tar and feathering. The original "Joyce" was Cornet George Joyce, a participant in the execution of Charles I, and one of the few references to his brief yet fascinating history is here (You may scroll down to just after page 88, however it's worth looking at the whole document to get a flavor of the Revolutionary times in Massachusetts.):
