Summary
Just over a year after Robert E. Lee relinquished his sword, a band of Union and Confederate veterans found a common goal: to seize the British province of Canada and to hold it hostage until the independence of Ireland was secured. By the time that these invasions -- known as the Fenian Raids -- began in 1866, Ireland had been Britain's unwilling colony for seven hundred years. Thousands of Civil War veterans were Irishmen who had fled rather than perish in the wake of the Great Hunger. Klein shows that -- with the tacit support of the U.S. government -- the Fenian Brotherhood established a state in exile, planned prison breaks, weathered infighting, stockpiled weapons, and assassinated enemies
