Episode 16 - Irish-Americans and the Civil War

American History Too!
is back for a new semester and we’re examining the Irish-American experience of
the Civil War (1861-1865).  To help us
delve into this vast and interesting topic is the University of Edinburgh’s
Catherine Bateson. 

Cat guides us through Irish immigration to North America,
the different military and civilian roles played by Irish-Americans during the
war, and some of the music that emerged from the Irish-American experience of
the young nation’s most brutal conflict.

We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed listening
to Cat while recording it. 

Thanks again to all of our listeners; we are humbled to be
nearing the 10,000 listens landmark in our first year of podcasting. As always
if you have any questions or feedback then please get in touch at @ahtoopodcast
