As part of the new suite of elements forming part of Irish in the American Civil War I am developing an occasional YouTube series exploring relevant topics, interspersed with footage I have taken while at relevant locations. The first in that series takes a look at the impact of the American Civil War on the Irish of Britain, through the lens of one Irish soldier and his family who lived on Tyneside in the North-East of England. If you enjoy the video, please consider subscribing to the Irish in the American Civil War YouTube Channel here.
