To everyone who has enjoyed my book, "A Rebellious Spirit: Daniel Tracey", I am introducing the sequel, "From Colony to Country: Michael Tracey" and covers the period 1840 to 1880.
Michael Tracey followed a different path from his father. He was less of a fighter and more of a thinker, and it served him well as he navigated the troubled political waters of Lower Canada in the 19th century. But he was prone to bouts of depression, and it weighed heavily on his loving family.
Learn about the Fenians, a rabble-rouser group of Irish-Canadian and American patriots who fought for freedom for their homeland in a most bizarre fashion, by taking on the British in the Canadas in the 1860s at the end of the American Civil War. Their exploits were doomed to failure, but their actions threatened the peace of the newly forming Canadian colony - they served to unite the colony - as the provinces joined together to fight a common foe. The Fathers of Confederation had tried for years to find compromises between the four provinces, Lower and Upper Canada, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, (as well as P.E.I. and Newfoundland), but it was the threat of the Fenians and the promise of a trans-continental railway that sealed the deal. Read about another stalwart Irish fighter, great orator, and brilliant statesman who played a pivotal role - Thomas D'Arcy McGee.
