"In 1869 ... 144,221 Irish-born Americans had served in the Union army during the Civil War. There were several regiments and brigades which were largely Irish. But in the Army of the Potomac, when soldiers referred to the Irish Brigade, every one knew they meant the New York, Boston and Philadelphia regiments first commanded by General Thomas F. Meagher, a naturalized exile from the abortive Rising of '48 in Ireland... The story of the Irish Brigade is really the story of the Americanization of its officers and men"--Introd. "No one who had ever fought side by side with the Irish, knowing at least that flank was secure, no one who saw the Brigade go into battle against all odds could have any doubt of the Irish-American's right to full citizenship"--Last ch.
