The Fenian Raids, 1866–1870. His most recent book is The Last Invasion of Canada: The Fenian Raids, 1866-1870.

In the turbulent decade which produced the Canadian Confederation of 1867, a group of seasoned veterans of the American Civil War turned their attention to the conquest of Canada. They were Irish-American revolutionaries — unique because they fought under their own flag. They were know as the Fenians and they believed that the first step on the road to the liberation of Ireland was to invade Canada. The Last Invasion of Canada vividly recaptures the drama of the decade. It recounts the fledgling nation’s rag-tag, but patriotic, defence against an enemy committed to a glorious cause, but with only scattered resources. It is a story of courage, espionage and petty crime, and of mismatched motivations and goals.

First published in the 1990s, this is an excellent study of the political and military strategy behind the last invasions of Canada from across the US border by Irish American Fenian insurgents in 1866-1870. It is some what dated now in its "micro" level account of what happened during the culminating moment of these invasions in the Battle of Ridgeway on June 2, 1866, fought near Fort Erie, Ontario.

While there are more recent books out there today on the Battle of Ridgeway, Canada's first modern battle, Hereward Senior's overall study of the Fenian military strategy and politics behind the raids on Canada, still remains the master macro study of the Fenian Raids 1866-1870.

For more recent scholarship on the first and largest of the Fenian Raids in 1866 and an in-depth tactical level account of the Battle of Ridgeway that culminated the raids and its significance, see Peter Vronsky's 2011 published Ridgeway: The American Fenian Invasion and the 1866 Battle that Made Canada: The History of Canada.

William Jenkins just published Between Raid and Rebellion: The Irish in Buffalo and Toronto, 1867-1916 (Mcgill-Queen's Studies in Ethnic History) follows through very nicely on the impact of trans-Atlantic insurgency on the Irish in Canada and the USA from after the 1866 Raid to the Easter Rebellion in Ireland in 1916.
