When the Irish Invaded Canada


Many Hibernians have heard about a battle at Ridgeway, but that’s about it.  When the Irish Invaded Canada, by Christopher Klein is an excellent book chronicling the schism within the Fenian Brotherhood, the quest for a free and independent Ireland, and a little known U.S. Presidential treachery. 

Also, Klein’s excellent presentation on Irish-American history circa 1865-67 and the political attitudes regarding Canada, Manifest Destiny and US/England relations in the timeframe is worth the time.  To view, click on:  https://youtu.be/-HFWVb_LqNA
