Who knew that Australian convicts fought in the American Civil War? This is the real-life account of two extraordinary men - John Mitchel and Thomas Meagher.

From the dusty archives of Australian history comes the untold tale of the decisive part they played in shaping the future of three separate continents. After inciting rebellion on one side of the world, they survived the brutality of convict chain gangs on the other, before crossing the Pacific to fight on the bloodier battlefields of the American Civil War and Native American uprisings of Montana.

For their astonishing victories, they became war heroes and won the respect of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis.

A story impossible to believe, but true.
