An exceptionally well researched blog that highlights the lives and fate of hundreds of thousands of Irish emigrants who were caught up the American Civil War, that is researched and written in the author’s spare time. He has revealed a very important resource for genealogical reserach, historical research and social history research that remains largely unstudied! If you can take a few moments to vote for this blog in the Blog Awards Ireland 2015, it would be much appreciated! Thank you!
I am pleased to say that the Irish in the American Civil War has been shortlisted in two categories for the Blog Awards Ireland. Many thanks to those who nominated the blog for the long-list initially, and to all of who you have taken the time to read my posts over the last five years. The next phase of judging will select the finalists for the awards, and includes a public vote element which accounts for 30% of the overall mark. Although perhaps not quite as vital a vote as that 1864 example illustrated below, I would still be very appreciative of your support! If you are so inclined, you can vote for the site in the Education & Science category by clicking here and in the Art & Culture Category by clicking here. I have also added links to the voting areas in the blog’s sidebar.
