A brand new resource has been added to the website, and can be found in the Resources section or by clicking here. It deals with letters from America that were published in Irish newspapers during the course of the American Civil War. The letters in question were sent back to Ireland by those with first hand knowledge of the conflict. Often originally written for relatives or friends of the correspondent, many found their way into local newspapers, and thus a wider audience. Others were sent with the explicit intent of publication, aimed at influencing those in Ireland in favour of one side or the other. It is a resource that will be consistently added to over time–I hope you enjoy it!
