Brown Bag Lunch with Neal Lewing on Thomas Francis Meagher

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

The Butte Archives will host the Montana Conversations program “Meagher of the Sword” with Neal Lewing on November 8. The program is part of the Archives’ regular Brown Bag Lunch series. The presentation is free and open to the public. Funding for the Montana Conversations program is provided by Humanities Montana through grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Montana’s Cultural Trust, and private donations. Thomas Francis Meagher's colorful lifetime of adventure spans two cultures and four continents. Irish rebel leader, escapee from Van Diemen's Land, American orator and statesman, designer of the Irish tricolor flag, distinguished Civil War general, and finally Montana's first territorial governor, his untimely disappearance in Ft. Benton remains an unsolved mystery. This is his story, from folklore, relevant music and his own words. Neal Lewing is an actor, singer/songwriter, recording artist, playwright, poet, storyteller, author and historian.
