The Books section of the site is intended to be a comprehensive resource of all relevant books published since 1861 on the Irish experience of the Civil War. It has now grown to 146 titles, and is, as far as I am aware, the most complete listing of books on the Irish in the war available on the internet. It is divided into sections, namely ‘Regimental & Brigade Histories’, ‘Biography’, ‘Edited/Personal Accounts’, ‘General Works’ and ‘Other’. Some of the titles are well known, while others are more obscure and harder to come by. 24 of the books, mainly personal memoirs, are linked directly to full text versions on archive.org, so it is possible to read these titles online. The books listed cover all aspects of the war, North and South, so be sure to check it out if you are researching the Irish in the American Civil War or interested in learning more. As ever, if you are aware of any potential additions to the list please let me know, and you will be fully acknowledged for your contribution.
