In order to increase the site’s visibility and to facilitate dissemination and discussion Irish in the American Civil War now has a presence on some other social media sites. If you are a member of facebook be sure to check out the new Irish in the American Civil War facebook fanpage that can be accessed here or in the blog’s sidebar. This will display the blog posts but will also include some general chit-chat and discussion on the topic- just click the ‘like’ button on the page to keep up to date!

A number of the posts over the past few months have involved photo records of sites related to American Civil War individuals in Ireland. To centralise this a new Irish in the American Civil War flickr page has been created and will be updated to coincide with each post. As with the facebook page you can access that site here or in the blog’s sidebar. The first photos on the page relate to Thomas Francis Meagher and Patrick Ronayne Cleburne.

I hope you enjoy the new media; the blog itself will soon have further resources added to it as I am currently working on compiling the after-action reports of the Irish Regiments, which I will be launching in the coming days and adding to over time.
