The Irish Invasion Of Canada

Categories: Event, History, NYS History

In this episode, Devin and Lauren investigate the invasions of Canada by the Fenian Brotherhood, a group of Irish Nationalists intent of freeing Ireland from British control. These invasions were launched from several locations in upstate New York, including the site of a recently-erected William G. Pomeroy Foundation marker for a Fenian campsite in the Franklin County town of Constable.
