Influenced by his brother-in-law, John Blake Dillon, he spent the revolutionary months in the United States as a Confederate agent, propagating the Irish cause and meeting American politicians, Irish-Americans and the new crop of exiles . His hitherto unpublished diary gives an intimate picture of the Young Irelanders, news of their failed revolution, and a vivid account of American politics and social mores, and landscape.

A highlight was his meeting with Wolfe Tone s widow, Matilda, who reminisced about the beauty of Lucien Bonaparte, asked after poor old Dublin and urged Hart not to expatriate himself . Hart followed her advice, returning to Dublin after a year in America to embark on half a century s inconspicuous work as a solicitor. Hart s diary set in context by the editor s wide-ranging introduction, gives a fresh and exhilarating perspective on Young Ireland and mid-century America.
