The Immortal Irishman: The Irish Revolutionary Who Became an American Hero by Timothy Egan
The British arrested him for treason and exiled him to Tasmania after he tried to raise a rebellion against the Crown. He escaped.
Bigots and political rivals tried to shame him when he spoke out against them. His words proved them wrong.
The soldiers of the Confederacy tried to kill him when he led a brigade of his countrymen against them. He survived.
Those who sought to take the law into their own hands thought that with his death his legacy would be forgotten. His legacy lives on to this day.
Poet, orator, revolutionary, soldier, statesman, leader, crusader, this is the story of Thomas Francis Meagher.
