Here is the fascinating, little-known story of the ambitious 19th-century efforts by the Irish and Irish-Americans of the Fenian Brotherhood to ignite an uprising in Ireland for an independent republic, and the ill-fated military campaign by a thousand Fenian men in June 1866 to forcibly seize part of Canada and establish an Irish republic there. This well written and thoroughly referenced account details the hopes, squabbles and disappointments of the players. Reveals the substantial impact of that Fenian activism had on domestic American politics, particularly after the Civil War had inflamed anti-English sentiment in the United States. With source references, bibliography, and index.
