The Andersonville Irish Project is continuing apace, and there has also been some good news in terms of funding recently. I am delighted that Andersonville National Historic Site has awarded the Project a POW Research Grant, a fund made available thanks to the generosity of the Friends of Andersonville. In the months to come, as well as continuing the research into the Irish Americans interred at the National Cemetery, I hope to further develop the Project webpage and mapping to make it is as interactive as possible. In the meantime, the latest Project update is now live. There are now more than 305 Irish Americans in the database, with many of them mapped onto their place of origin in Ireland. You can explore the map here or by clicking on the image below, and search the full database on the project page here.
