Product Description

Review

"The Irish Brigade played an important role in many key clashes of the Civil War, including Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and Petersburg. Craughwell (Stealing Lincoln s Body) recounts both the larger picture of each engagement and its significance to the war as a whole and the particular role played by the Irish Brigade. He also intersperses personal stories that reflect the challenges faced by Irish Catholics in their new country, which was in many ways xenophobic and anti-Catholic. VERDICT: This engrossing book will appeal both to Civil War buffs and to those interested in the Irish American experience." -Library Journal"
