In March I had the opportunity to speak to the Irish American Heritage Museum in Albany, New York, about some of my latest research. The talk focused on the experience of Irish Americans around New York’s Capital Region during the conflict, and it gave me an opportunity to discuss some of these men’s correspondence in more detail than I often can. The Museum have now put the talk up on their YouTube channel here and you can also catch it below. This was the first of my long distance talks that encountered a technical hitch, as I lost internet connection for 5 minutes midway, but thankfully power was quickly restored! I hope you enjoy it.
