With Chicago’s Irish Legion James B. Swan is offering more than just another history of an Irish regiment in the Union Armythis is an overlooked unit whose story provides great insights into the motivations and experiences of Civil War soldiers.”
Susannah Ural Bruce, author of The Harp and the Eagle: Irish-American Volunteers and the Union Army, 18611865
Not as famous as some other units, the Irish Legion saw hard action at Missionary Ridge and the Atlanta Campaign, and marched with General William T. Sherman to the sea and the Carolinas. James B. Swan clearly and crisply recounts their memorable story, giving readers a fresh look at the Civil War in the west, and at the immigrant soldier experience.”Lesley J. Gordon, author of General George E. Pickett in Life and Legend
James B. Swan is an independent historian and retired professor of agronomy at Iowa State University.
