I am delighted to say that Irish in the American Civil War has been shortlisted for the 2016 Irish Blog Awards in the Arts & Culture category. This is the same category the site was fortunate enough to win in the 2015 Blog Awards, thanks in no small part to the many readers who voted for it. This year, 20% of the judging relies on public vote; if you would like to cast a ballot for the blog (and thanks to everyone who does!) you can do so via the link here: Irish in the American Civil War Vote Page which can also be accessed by clicking the image in the sidebar.
