THE IMMORTAL IRISHMAN: The Irish Revolutionary Who Became an American Hero
A dashing young orator during the Great Hunger of the 1840s, Thomas Meagher led a failed uprising against British rule, for which he was banished to a Tasmanian prison colony for life. Two years later, he was rabble-rousing in New York. He led the Irish Brigade in the Civil War, and afterward tried to establish a new Ireland in the wild west of Montana. Photos.
