Thread Name: Music of US Civil War & Irish Immigrants
Subject: RE: Music of US Civil War & Irish Immigrants
I was interested in the comments included in this thread about the Irish immigrants and the Civil War. While it doesn't focus on the music of the time, I happen to be reading Thomas Keneally 'The Great Shame' and it has very interesting information on Thomas Meagher (which I found out is pronounced 'Maher') and the formation of the Irish regiments - and the battles they were involved in.
