Described by Padraic Pearse as 'Ireland's greatest literary figure', John Mitchell is one of the most paradoxical and intriguing figures in Irish history.
He was the foremost voice of Irish separatism and he became a leader in the Young Ireland movement.
Eventually exiled to Van Diemen's land but escaped to the United States where he became a firm supporter of the Confederacy and an unapologetic defender of slavery.
Two of his sons died on the battlefields during the American Civil War. This book explores his life and politics.
