    This is a fascinating history of how Irish American insurgents the Fenians mostly former veterans of the just ended Civil War invaded Canada in 1866 As everybody is commemorating the War of 1812 currently many forget that the “last invasion” of Canada from US territory took place shortly after the Civil War in June 1866 as thousands of insurgents crossed over from Vermont and New YorkWhile this book focuses on the Canadian aspect of the invasion and the impact it had on the birth of modern Canada and its military it provides also much detail on the Fenian and US sides as well There is virtually no new literature out there on the Fenian Raids into Canada and this book fills in the gap brilliantlyVronsky is a historian and the author of two histories of serial homicide and although this book is a dramatic departure from the themes of his previous two books it is a compelling well written history on insurgent warfare on the US Canadian border in the 1860s It is based on his recent Phd dissertation on the subject of espionage in international relations but it reads like a popular history a page turner

    Wonderful account of the Fenian Raids of 1866 and the events that lead and followed it Some of the discussion on bullets and guns gets a little long but this account almost plays the event by the minutes and brings light to an evening of Canadian history that has long been forgotten It also acts as a rallying cry to have the men and women who fought and were involved in the event to be recognized by our Remembrance Day ironically I learned was previously based on the dates of the 1866 raid until 1931 when it was changed to November 11 and all previous veterans were erased from the honouring
