Meagher depicts a dashing man astride a prancing horse, waving his sword over his head and urging the Irish Brigade into battle. Meagher then used his military experience as a springboard to high political office, a career cut short by his mysterious death.
Meagher showed his true character at an early age. A skilled orator, he also demonstrated a lifelong propensity for making enemies and creating public furor. The world first heard of young Thomas Meagher inafter he spoke before a hostile audience in Dublin, where he urged the violent overthrow of British rule on the Emerald Isle.
It was not long before the young revolutionary attracted the notice of British authorities. On March 21,Meagher was arrested and charged with seditious libel.
He was again arrested during the late summer ofand this time he was found guilty of sedition and treasonous activity. He was sentenced to be hanged, drawn and quartered, but his sentence was later commuted to banishment for life, and Meagher was shipped to the penal colony of Tasmania, where he lived uneventfully for several years.
Meagher was not content to live out his life in exile, however, and with the help of two sailors he secretly rowed to a tiny island between Australia and Tasmania, where, by prearrangement, he was picked up by boat 10 days later. He arrived in New York City at the end of May and found himself an instant celebrity.
The large Irish community in New York welcomed his arrival with wild enthusiasm. Thousands of people cheered him in the streets, and parties were thrown in his honor. He became a U. Like so many of his other professions, his law career was undistinguished, although Meagher did serve as an associate lawyer during the celebrated murder defense of Daniel E.
Sickles, a man destined to become a major general in the Union Army of the Potomac. The Sickles trial was one of the most sensational in American history.
When Sickles inevitably heard the rumors, he forced his wife to confess and sign an admission of her guilt. He also continued his speaking tours. Of his varied careers orator, editor, lawyer, soldier, politicianhe was most successful at lecturing.
He traveled throughout the United States and Central America, and he was particularly impressed by the Southern states. Meagher, a confirmed Democrat, declared his sympathies for the South during the spring ofbut he soon realized his was an unpopular position in New York.
Although he had no military experience, he advertised in the newspapers for Irishmen to form a company of Irish Zouaves under his leadership.
The 69th, which divisional commander Colonel William T. Sherman considered his most reliable regiment, came into the battle on the Sudley Springs Road, crossed the Warrenton Turnpike, and struck the Confederate line near the Henry house.
Meagher swung his sword over his head.
Three times the 69th attacked uphill toward the Confederates, and three times they were repulsed in very heavy fighting. The color-bearers, carrying the green flag of the 69th into combat for the first time, became targets for Rebel sharpshooters. Despite a valiant effort by the Irishmen, the enemy artillery forced them back.
He was saved from certain capture by a former neighbor from New York who recognized him. The 69th retreated in good order, but left almost of their number on the field, dead, wounded or missing.
Most of the Federal troops, however, were fleeing the field in disorder, and the 69th joined the rout. Jubilant Confederate cavalry swept into the disorganized Federals, and Colonel Corcoran and many of his men were captured.
The dazed Meagher was put aboard an artillery caisson as it rumbled back to Washington. One of the horses pulling the caisson was shot and the wagon overturned, dumping the already shaken Meagher into the water.
The overturned wagon blocked the road, causing additional panic among the fleeing troops, many of whom did not stop running until they reached the outskirts of Washington, D.Perhaps no one has championed the association between dyslexia and talent more than Thomas G.
