Description

In the turbulent decade which produced the Canadian Confederation of 1867, a group of seasoned veterans of the American Civil War turned their attention to the conquest of Canada. They were Irish-American revolutionaries -- unique because they fought under their own flag. They were know as the Fenians and they believed that the first step on the road to the liberation of Ireland was to invade Canada. The Last Invasion of Canada vividly recaptures the drama of the decade. It recounts the fledgling nation's rag-tag, but patiotic, defence against an ememy committed to a glorious cause, but with only scatterered resources. It is a story of courage, espionage and petty crime, and of mismatched motivations and goals.
