    New York & Boston: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016. Hardcover first edition - A biography by this award-winning author of "one of the most fascinating and colorful Irishman in nineteenth-century America. A dashing young orator during the Great Famine of the 1840s, in which a million of his Irish countrymen died, Thomas Francis Meagher led a failed uprising against British rule, for which he was banished to a Tasmanian prison colony. He escaped and six months later was heralded in the streets of New York the revolutionary hero, back from the dead, at the dawn of the great Irish immigration to America. Meaghers rebirth in America included his leading the newly formed Irish Brigade from New York in many of the fiercest battles of the Civil War Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg. The hero's last chapter, as territorial governor of Montana, was a romantic quest for a true home in the far frontier. His death has long been a mystery to which Egan brings haunting, colorful new evidence." Photographs, source notes, index. xv, 368 pp. ISBN: 978-0544272880.
