Each month Professor Susannah Ural of The University of Southern Mississippi runs the ‘Ural on URLs’ feature in Civil War Times magazine, exploring the Civil War on the internet. Many readers of this site will be familiar with Professor Ural’s work through publications such as The Harp and the Eagle and Civil War Citizens. I was honoured that this month she chose as her focus my recent efforts to tell the stories of 41 Civil War pensioners in Ireland through the use of Twitter and Storify. For those who missed it, you can read more about that project and find a link to the Storify article here. In the Civil War Times piece Professor Ural provides more detail on the story of Cornelius Garvin and his mother Catherine from Bruff, Co. Limerick. Cornelius was killed in action with the 52nd New York Infantry at Spotsylvania in 1864- he and his mother’s story remains one of the most remarkable I have come across. To find out more about it be sure to check out the Civil War Times!
