    S 1 : Ep 3 - 10/2/81

    The story opens in 1863 during the U.S. Civil War with Rachel and Rory's 3rd loss and burial of a baby. Rory eventually returns for good at war's end having served as a Major in the Irish Brigade and is now co-owner of the gunpowder mill. His Irish partner makes contact with their rebel friends in Ireland and wants Rory to donate gunpowder and supplies to fuel an Irish uprising against the British. Meanwhile David returns, much to Caleb's consternation, and he brings a former rebel POW with him that he believed was Rory and Deidre's long lost brother Sean. Rory decides to go to Ireland with the powder shipment to help his countrymen free their land. But while en route, word comes that the convoy is to be ambushed. When Caleb shows up to warn them, he sacrifices his life to allow the convoy to continue to its destination. Rory arrives in Ireland, meets up with old friends, and helps them hide the supplies throughout the county. But after Rory is captured and his friends rescue him, he is forced to leave Ireland again because he is now considered a liability. When he returns to Philadelphia, he discovers that Rachel has just given birth to yet another son, the first O'Manion born in America to survive, and they name him Shane. But Rachel eventually dies from complications of the birth, concluding the miniseries on a bittersweet note.moreless

    S 1 : Ep 1 - 9/30/81

    The miniseries opens with a funeral procession in rural County Galway Ireland, which is rudely interrupted by a group of British residents on a fox hunt. Rachel Clement, the daughter of the British landlord for what was once O'Manion property in County Galway, arrives to live at her father's estate and finds that her brother David is also in the area, stationed there as part of a British regiment. Rachel meets and takes an interest in Rory O'Manion, a local Irish rebel, and convinces her father to hire him. Concurrently, David has a disastrous run-in with Rory's sister Deidre, where the result leads to an eventual courtship. But much to Rachel's consternation, the funeral outrage coupled with the death of his mother during childbirth, a growing agricultural disaster affecting the potato crop, and his involvement in an armed uprising against the British occupiers, forces Rory, now a fugitive, to leave his beloved home in search of a new beginning in the bustling river port city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the 1840s United States.moreless
