It is September 1844 in Ireland, on the very eve of the Great Famine. Billy Gogan’s father has just died in a British prison, and his cousin, Seamus, has sent Billy away to America. Billy and his traveling companions, a destitute Irish peasant woman named Máire and her daughter Fíona, endure the harsh passage to Gotham, America’s greatest city. Their ship nearly founders during a great storm and later is forced to pick her way through a great forest of icebergs.
As they debark their ship after finally arriving in New York, Máire and Fíona disappear. Billy is left to search for them in the dangerous streets of the Five Points, the greatest slum in America. The Five Points is “ground zero” in the cultural collision of native Americans, Negroes fled from slavery in the south and Irish refugees from famine and persecution. Billy eventually finds Máire and Fíona, and they plan a future together. But that future is taken in a cruel stroke, and Billy must flee for his life. He finds refuge in the voluntary servitude of the U.S. Army’s Fourth Regiment in Corpus Christi on the eve of war with Mexico—or is it to be war with England and the hated Sassenagh over the far-off Oregon territory?
But Billy’s refuge in the Fourth Infantry is a mixed blessing. On the one hand, Billy has his great friend, Hermann Wurster and is befriended by a young lieutenant named Ulysses S. Grant. But on the other hand, an-all-to-easily swayed Lieutenant Lefort and his company First Sergeant, the sadistic Hoggs, seem to be on a vendetta against Billy and Hermann. They battle to the death with Hoggs—as America hurtles into war with Mexico; a war for which both countries are painfully unprepared.
