In advance of St. Patrick’s Day I joined John Banks and Tom McMillan of the Antietam and Beyond Podcast to chat about the Irish Brigade and other Irish at Antietam, and Irish participation in the Civil War more generally. It was a really enjoyable chat- you can find it wherever you got your podcasts, by searching for Antietam and Beyond, or by visiting the podcast site here. John and Tom need little introduction; John runs the John Banks’ Civil War Blog (see his most recent publication is A Civil War Roadtrip of a Lifetime) while Tom has also authored multiple history books, and his latest is Our Flag Was Still There. I have been greatly enjoying their Antietam podcast so far, it is well worth checking out their past episodes. I hope you enjoy it!
