The Patriot – Thomas Meagher

Thomas Meagher was an Irish Nationalist who participated in the infamous Young Irelander Rebellion in 1848. The rebellion was a desperate attempt to gain independence from the British Crown and to set up an Irish republic. For his role in the rebellion Meagher was tried and sentenced to penal transportation to Van Diemen’s Land, (Tasmania) in Australia. Though faced with an obvious set back Meagher didn’t allow himself to be beaten. He managed to escape Tasmania and make his way to New York, where through sheer force of will and determination he educated himself and began a career as a lecturer and writer.

But this was by no means the end of his journey. He fought for the union during the American Civil War and later became governor of the newly minted Territory of Montana. Meagher story is one of grit and perseverance. He was a man who pursued his goals even though the odds were stacked against him. Join us this week as we explore the life of Thomas Meager and take a look at grit and how our mindset can make a difference in how we achieve our goals.
