1970 - 1971

Maggie Flynn

Maggie Flynn is based on a true story set in New York City during the Draft Riots of 1863. Maggie is an Irish girl who is struggling to run a home for Black refugee children orphaned by the Civil War. She is also waiting out the necessary seven years to claim her runaway actor husband Phineas legally dead so that she can marry Colonel Faraday, a Union army officer. Inconveniently, Phineas turns up as a clown in a circus parade. Maggie succeeds in having him sign the divorce papers. With a wedding now possible, the Colonel is posted to New York, but Maggie is no longer sure about marrying him and Phineas wants to win Maggie back.


In the uneasy atmosphere of New York during the Civil War, Maggie and the children are arrested under suspicion of harbouring Confederate spies. After acquittal, Maggie loses faith in the Colonel and the romance ends. When rioting erupts in New York, the orphanage is burned down. Maggie and Phineas decide to start all over again, taking care of the orphans together.
