Who knew that men from Australia fought in the American Civil War?

This is the untold story of two extraordinary men – John Mitchel and Thomas Meagher. These men played a decisive role in the shaping of three separate continents. Martyrs to their countries cause, they inciting rebellion on one side of the world, survived the brutality of convict chain gangs on the other, and then crossed the ocean, once more, to fight on the bloodier battlefields of the American Civil War and savage Indian uprisings of Montana.

For their astonishing victories, they became heroes and won the respect of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis.

Soft cover, 247 pages.
