Never knew there was an Irish Brigade. If the CSA won World War I by Jordan)Alternate history is a genre of speculative fiction which alters historical events and sets stories within the worlds created by those changes.

  • Many individuals tend to feel the Civil War was basically just the North and South fighting for a cause they believed in In this book Dr. Tucker introduces the reader to a group of men who came to this country from across the sea. These are the historic accounts of these brave men who left their homeland to come to America to find a dream and without hesitation enlisted in the Union army to protect and hopefully fulfill the dream they came here for. The book is packed with facts and photos and an interesting note I did not know. The Irish marching song the Gary Owen we have heard so many times and came here with those immigrants was the official song of the 69th NY and more known as the song if the 7th Calvary who was under the command of one George Armstrong Custer. It was said that Custer heard the song and liked it so much he adopted it for his men.
    For those who really enjoy history as I do this is wonderful addition to anyone's collection.

  • Not especially deep. Not an academic treatise, but a nice historic complement to my Civil War collection. Very fast read. When I was half-way through the book, my take away was: Had I enlisted in the Irish Brigade, I'd have been dead by the Battle of Fredericksburg...never mind Gettysburg or Grant's 1864 Campaign!

    Enjoyed it very much!

  • Mr. Tucker's book is a good overview for those who nothing about the Irish Brigade. Unfortunately the book focuses on the usual suspects, Nugent, Meagher, Kelly, and most of the field grade officers. I was surprised to see Captain Maurice Wall mentioned--however Mr. Tucker didn't provide us with the details of Captain Wall's escape with his buddy Lieutenant Charles Grainger. Mr. Tucker completely ignores Irish Nationalism in the equation--this seems to be a recent trend by American authors.

  • An excellent book and it details these brave Irishmen who fought for the Union and why they fought for the Union, the book is not too long so it does not bore you with details. Anyone who is interested in reading about Irish who fought for the Union need to read this book.

  • Dry

  • Great book and quick shipping.
