Charles Gavan Duffy loved Ireland and played a major roll in its history during the 1800's. Most everything he did was for Irish independence and land rights. He helped organize a weekly paper, the Nation and was a founder of the Young Irelanders. He was charged with crimes nine times under English law and imprisoned a total of 13 months. He entered the House of Commons at Westminster in 1852 but resigned in 1855. In Victoria, Australia he was Chief Secretary, Premier and Speaker in their Parliament. Later he moved to southern France and became an author and wrote a great portion of the history of Ireland during his earlier years.
