Podcast: Beyond the Irish Brigade with The Rogue Historian

Last week I had a conversation with Dr. Keith Harris who runs The Rogue Historian website and podcast. Keith will be known to many readers for his very well-received book Across the Bloody Chasm: The Culture of Commemoration among Civil War Veterans published by LSU Press. We spent what was for me a Cork evening and for Keith an L.A. late morning having a very enjoyable discussion about all things Irish and the American Civil War. Keith’s podcast is now available from his website, and you can listen by clicking here. Among the topics we cover are archaeology, pension records as a source for the emigrant experience, Irish commitment to the Union, Irish attitudes towards slavery and emancipation, Irish memory of emigration, and even what film and book I recommend! Hope you enjoy listening.
