TIL In 1848 Irish Nationalist Thomas Meagher was sentenced to be “hanged, drawn and quartered”. Instead he was exiled to Tasmania. He escaped, became a Civil War Brigadier General and the Governor of Montana Territory. While Governor, he fell into the Missouri River and his body was never found. submitted by /u/JohnBernhisel
