Otherwise a very good copy. Fitzgerald (1763-1798) was member of the Protestant Ascendancy. He had been wounded in the American Revolution, explored Canada, and influenced by the French Revolution, eventually joined the United Irishmen. Arrested, again wounded, he died (supposedly from lack of care) in Newgate Prison. Of such a life are romantic legends made, and Moore is sympathetic to that ideal.
