The Birth of the Fenian Movement

American Diary, Brooklyn 1859

James Stephens’ "American Diary" is one of the most important documents of early Fenianism. It uncovers the difficulties facing the movement’s founders, and offers an insight into mid nineteenth-century American life and the Irish-American community. It also provides a unique first-hand impression of James Stephens’ striking personality. It is one of Stephens’ scarce full-length pieces and one of the best written, although it has not previously been published in its entirety.
