Thomas Francis Meagher (Lecture)

Here’s Supervisory Ranger Angie Atkinson giving a lecture on the Irish Brigade’s Thomas Francis Meagher as part of the Gettysburg National Military Park’s 2017 Winter Lecture Series.

The video’s description reads, “From his exile to Van Diemen’s Land to the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death, Thomas Francis Meagher’s life was captivating and mystifying. Dedication to his men was unquestionable, but rumors of overindulgence darkened his reputation both on and off the battlefield. Join Angie Atkinson as she delves into Gen. Meagher’s complicated history and examines some of the lingering questions regarding his leadership, actions, and untimely passing.”
