I have recently returned from Georgia and Tennessee where I was on the trail of Irish in the American Civil War. A lot of my posts over the next period will relate to that trip. One of the opportunities I had while there was to join Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park Historian James Ogden for a tour of sites relating to “Chicago’s Irish Legion”-the 90th Illinois Infantry- during the Battle of Missionary Ridge. Jim’s expertise is breathtaking, and it was a great privilege to be able to spend a few hours in his company on the battlefield. I have completed a StoryMap Tour of the day so that readers can virtually follow in our footsteps through images and video. To view the StoryMap, click on this link.
