The site has featured a number of posts based on research I carried out on the birthplaces of the men of the 23rd Illinois Infantry (Mulligan’s Irish Brigade) which led to the production of a number of maps to show what countries, states and Irish counties men in that regiment came from. In addition friend of the site Jim Swan, author of the superb Chicago’s Irish Legion, kindly provided some of his research on the 90th Illinois (Chicago’s Irish Legion) to enable a similar graphic representation for that regiment. I felt that it would be appropriate to add this information to the resources section of the site, where it can now be found separated by regiment under ‘Regimental Nativity’. I hope readers find it of use, and hopefully in the future more Irish regiments can be added.
