From the rear side cover: The 28th September 1912 was the day which saw the signing of Ulster's Solemn League and Covenant by which the Unionist men and women of Ulster showed their solidarity, determination and self­discipline when opposing the British Government's Third Home Rule Bill. The Covenant proclaimed that Ulstermen would surrender neither their "civil and religious freedom" nor "their cherished position of equal citizenship in the United Kingdom" and would combine to resist the imposition of governance from a parliament in Dublin.

In Ulster, the Covenant was signed by 218,206 men and 228,991 women signed a parallel declaration associating themselves with the men "in their uncompromising opposition to the Home Rule Bill now before Parliament." A further 19,162 men and 5,055 women of Ulster birth signed at various locations outside the Province. By the end of the day, the Unionists of Ulster had demonstrated their resolve to the British Parliament and to the world.
