H.P. 1369

 

 

JOINT RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING THE CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE STATE OF THE SCOTCH-IRISH MIGRANTS OF 1718 ON THE OCCASION OF THE 300TH ANNIVERSARY OF THEIR ARRIVAL

 

            WHEREAS, October 2018 marks the 300th anniversary of the arrival in Casco Bay of 2 ships, the HMS McCallum and the HMS Robert, carrying a large group of immigrants from the north of Ireland; and

 

            WHEREAS, the HMS Robert anchored in the Fore River off the coast of what is now South Portland and the HMS McCallum discharged settlers in the area of Merrymeeting Bay; and

 

            WHEREAS, Maine has many descendants of these settlers and later immigrants from the north of Ireland, who brought with them a unique worldview, language and musical culture that enriched and influenced Maine's development; and

 

            WHEREAS, the settlers brought with them fundamental beliefs in representative democracy and in freedom of religion, as they had been persecuted in Scotland and Ireland for their Presbyterian faith; and

 

            WHEREAS, they planted some of the first field crops of potatoes to be grown in New England, an agricultural product that has played a key role in the State's economic development; and

 

            WHEREAS, they brought with them a knowledge of textile production, having participated in the linen manufacturing trade in Ireland, and helped establish important textile manufacturing industries in Maine; and

 

            WHEREAS, these settlers and their descendants participated fully in Maine's local militias and the descendants have participated in all military activities in which the United States has been involved since 1776; and

 

            WHEREAS, these settlers and their descendants have produced many significant legislative and political figures who have played important roles in the history of the State and there have been at least 20 American Presidents with Scotch-Irish ancestry; now, therefore, be it

 

            RESOLVED: That We, the Members of the One Hundred and Twenty-eighth Legislature now assembled in the Second Special Session, on behalf of the people we represent, take this opportunity to recognize in October 2018 the contributions of the Scotch-Irish in Maine and the Tricentennial of the Arrival of the 1718 Migrants.

Dear Secretary Priest:

 

House Paper 1368, Legislative Document 1925, "An Act To Provide Funding for the Conduct of Elections," having been returned by the Governor, together with objections to the same, pursuant to Article IV, Part Third, Section 2 of the Constitution of the State of Maine, after reconsideration, the House proceeded to vote on the question:  "Shall this Bill become a law notwithstanding the objections of the Governor?"

 

74 voted in favor and 46 against, and accordingly it was the vote of the House that the Bill not become a law and the veto was sustained.

 

Sincerely,

 

S/Robert B. Hunt

Clerk of the House
