American Citizens, British Slaves - Yankee political prisoners in an Australian Penal Colony
 
(0 reviews)  

This book tells the strange story of almost a hundred United States citizens who were transported to Van Diemen's Land in 1839-1840.

As members of the Patriot Army that had conducted border raids into the colony of Upper Canada in 1838, they saw themselves as courageous republican activists, impelled by a moral duty to liberate their northern neighbours from British oppression.
