Title: Waterford connections to the American Civil War
Waterford people are well aware of Thomas Francis Meagher’s involvement in the American Civil War, however, he was one of only many Waterford people who participated in or whose families were touched by this bloody conflict. Mr Shiels’ research has revealed the impact the war had on Irish participants and their relatives.
