Dublin, Gill & Son, 1943.
Michael Doheny took part in the Young Irelander Rebellion of 1848, eluded arrest, and after being hunted by the police for some time, escaped to New York. He settled in the United States, and became a lawyer and a soldier with the Fenian Brotherhood. He was also instrumental in the founding of the Irish-American 69th Infantry Regiment, nicknamed the "Fighting Irish", in which he was a company commander. Though it was never involved in liberating Ireland, as Doheny hoped, the regiment would have an illustrious history in the American Civil War and both world wars.
