Irish Brigade

The Irish Brigade
They had swarmed across the sea from Ireland in the 1840s to escape the "Great Hunger" only to encounter nativist bigotry and rejection in America. But in 1861 the Irish answered Lincoln's call in the hundreds of thousands and earned the respect of the nation with their sweat and blood. Most famous of all Irish units of the Union army was the renowned "Irish Brigade", who traced their inspiration back to the legendary Irish Brigade in the service of France www.cafeshops.com/irishbrigade_fr . The Brigade’s heroic actions at places like the "Bloody Lane" at Antietam in September 1862 and "Marye's Heights" at Fredericksburg in December of the same year would put to rest forever any doubt of the commitment of Irish immigrants to their adopted home.
