Author and Journalist.

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, author, poet and journalist Augustine Joseph Hickey later adopted the surname "Duganne".

A Lieutenant Colonel during the Civil War, Duganne, a member of the 176th Regiment, New York Infantry (the Ironsides Regiment), was captured in 1863 and spent over a year in Confederate prisons. He drew on this prisoner of war experience with the publication of a memoir, "Camps and Prisons : Twenty Months in the Department of the Gulf". His other works ranged on a wide variety of subjects and included volumes of poetry, histories, satires and novels. Both before and after the Civil War, he was a prolific and popular contributor to many newspaper and periodical publications of the era.

Duganne espoused nativist philosophies, and was a founder of the "Know Nothing" party, serving a term in the New York State Legislature. That party enjoyed some electoral success in the 1850s, but largely lost popularity as a political movement before the Civil War.
