of his Irish countrymen died, leads a failed uprising against British
for which he is banished to a Tasmanian prison colony. He escapes, and
later is heralded in the streets of New York, the revolutionary hero,
back from the dead -- at the dawn of the great Irish immigration to
Meagher's rebirth in America included his leading the newly formed
from New York in many of the fiercest battles of the Civil War: Bull
Fredericksburg. Meagher's dream was that Irish-American troops,
seasoned by war,
would return to Ireland and liberate their homeland from British rule.
