HOW THE IRISH HELPED
LINCOLN SAVE THE UNION
When Pickett charged at Gettysburg, it was the Fighting Irish 69th who held fast while the surrounding regiments broke and ran. And it was Abraham Lincoln who, after the Battle of Malvern Hill, picked up a corner of the Irish colors, kissed it and said, “God bless the Irish.” This fascinating book delves into the untold story of Lincoln’s evolving relationship with the flood of Irish immigrants coming to America’s shores, driven by famine and willing to fight for their new country. Hardcover; 204 pages.
