For someone to choose this country and live through 17 U.S. Presidents is amazing. Eugene Magevney was born in 1798 in Ireland. He must have heard the call of freedom from America as a child while our nation was still in its infancy and John Adams was just taking over the presidency from George Washington. And it must have been destiny that Mr. Magevney began his long productive life as an Irish immigrant in America living in a simple house located on a well established street in Memphis named for that same President Adams. Eugene Magevney surely was influenced by every U.S. president up to Ulysses S. Grant. The difficulties of 19th century life and the irony of families choosing freedom for themselves, yet denying it to others by purchasing slaves is baffling. "Let Freedom Ring" explores one family's 19th century thru the comparison of heirloom fruits, politics, and life events.
