Who Was Thomas Assist Emmet?

Emmet was an exiled leader of the 1798 Irish Rebellion, who by his death in 1827 had become one of New York's most prominent lawyers. Labeled one of the "disaffected Irish," Emmet's 1804 emigration to America had faced stiff opposition from future New York senator Rufus King and other Federalists. Incidentally, Emmet's body remains in a "temporary" grave at St. Mark's-Church-in-the-Bowery.
