The Irish Civil War (Irish: Cogadh Cathartha na hÉireann; 28 June 1922 – 24 May 1923) was a conflict that followed the Irish War of Independence and accompanied the establishment of the Irish Free State, an entity independent from the United Kingdom but within the British Empire. The civil war was waged between two opposing groups, the pro-treaty Provisional Government and the anti-treaty IRA, over the Anglo-Irish Treaty

THE IRISH BRIGADE Few brigades of the Civil War can boast of a record as distinguished as that of New York's .

THE IRISH BRIGADE Few brigades of the Civil War can boast of a record as distinguished as that of New York's 69th, yet it has never fully received the attention warranted by its record of military excellence, distinctive reputation, and the unusual perspective its members brought to the Civil War. In fact, the 69th was engaged in nearly every major action of the eastern theater; its military reputation was well deserved and its combat casualties, which are some of the highest of the war, are testimony to the soldiers' collective bravery and patriotism.

The Civil War continues to fascinate historians and general readers. Contemporary Civil War scholarship has brought to light the important roles certain ethnic groups played during that tumultuous time in our nation's history. Adding to that genre of literature is this brief but informative history of the Irish Brigade. While the famed fighting prowess of the Irish Brigade at Antietam and Gettysburg is well known.

That was the Irish Brigade in the Battle of Fredericksburg, paying with their lives for Burnside’s tragic blunder. And for the only time in its short proud history the brigade had to retreat from ‘the clash of spears,’ terribly shattered, having suffered 4. percent casualties in killed, wounded, and missing. At the outbreak of the Civil War he raised a Zouave company and commanded it at First Bull Run as part of the 69th New York State Militia. That winter he organized the Irish Brigade and President Lincoln appointed him brigadier general of Volunteers in February 1862.

At the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861, thousands of Irish and Irish-American New Yorkers enlisted in the Union Army. Some joined ordinary-that is, non-Irish-regiments, but others formed three all-Irish voluntary infantries: the 63rd New York Infantry Regiment, organized on Staten Island, and the 69th and 88th New York Infantry Regiments, organized in the Bronx.

Irish Brigade (Spanish Civil War). The Irish Brigade (Spanish: Brigada Irlandesa, "Irish Brigade" Irish: Briogáid na hÉireann) fought on the Nationalist side of Francisco Franco during the Spanish Civil War. The unit was formed wholly of Roman Catholics by the politician Eoin O'Duffy, who had previously organised the banned quasi-fascist Blueshirts and openly fascist Greenshirts in Ireland.

Few brigades of the Civil War can boast of a record as distinguished as that of New York's 69th, yet it has never fully received the attention warranted by its record of military excellence, distinctive reputation, and the unusual perspective its members brought to the Civil War. In fact, the 69th was engaged in nearly every major action of the eastern theater; its military reputation was well deserved and its combat casualties, which are some of the highest of the war, are testimony to the soldiers' collective bravery and patriotism. In his post as war correspondent for the New York Herald, Capt. David Power Conygham was required to be an eyewitness to the many battles on which he reported - some of the experiences he would later describe when writing the history of the Irish Brigade. Conygham's account of the Irish Brigade is one of the best - filled with vivid accounts of battle, wit and humor, and an appendix of scrupulously gathered biographical data on the men who served the unit.

Conynham's tale of the Irish Brigade must stand tall above all others for it is the definitive single volume account of the Irish Brigade. True it's not the only book on this subject, more modern accounts, are certainly worth picking up, but Conynham has one unique advantage. He was there. His time in the Brigade may have been short, but he was able to see it up close, in camp and battle, so he knows of what he speaks. The tale he weaves is one of heroism and sacrifice. Conyham brilliantly chronicles the brigade's life from its creation throughout the wars entirety to its disbandment, and everything in between. Conynham's ability to set the strategic and tactical scene is unmatched, his writing is crisp and to the point, providing enough details so that the reader knows enough to understand what the brigade was marching into, and then giving us an account of their battlefield performance, followed by the casualty figures of each regiment. All in all a book with a little something of everything, bloody battles, political intrigue, unmatched heroism, a true and worthy account to the green flag bearing Pattys.

Capt. Conyngham has done a fine job in detailing the history, and little known parts, of the famous Union Irish Brigade. While he does tend to lend a little favoritism to the Brigade and hushes the intent of the Brigade to serve as a pool for soldiers to help liberate Ireland from English rule after the Civil War, it is still a great book and a wonderful addition to anyone's collection of War reference material.
