I was recently interviewed by David Cummins, who operates The Irish at War podcast (along with The Irish at War twitter and instagram pages) to discuss the Irish in the American Civil War. My chat with David is the most extensive and wide-ranging discussion I have had on the topic in this format. We touched on a multitude of facets of the Irish experience, everything from emigration to Irish American life, motivations for enlistment, battlefield experiences, draft rioting, racism and many, many more. You can listen to the podcast below or via David’s podcast channel (on Soundcloud here and iTunes here). I hope you enjoy it, and be sure and give David’s work a follow!
