After reading the book called ”Divided City” we have been researching the Orange Order and its past.
The Orange Walk is a large part of Irish history. They do a walk to remember all of the soldiers and innocent people that died in the Battle of Diamond and the Battle of Boyne by marching through the streets. They began to walk on the 21st of September 1795 in Loughgall, Northern Ireland.
The main point of the Orange Walk/Orange Order existing is to remember all of the people who died in the ”Battle of Diamond” and the ”Battle of Boyne” so it is either something you like and do or you do not like and do not do. It can also be a matter of what religion or beliefs you and your family believe in.
