#OnThisDay 1861 The American Civil War began with the attack on the Union held Fort Sumter. Throughout this conflict, 200,000 Irish born men served. The first casualty was Roscommon man Pte Daniel Hough.
I'm David, I'm from Ireland. I am an avid fan of history. I have my B.A. in History, my M.A. in Military History and Strategic Studies,a Post Qualification Diploma in History and I've been teaching History for five years now.
I wanted to create a podcast that examines, in great detail, major Irish battles and battles allover the world in various wars that Irish people played a significant part in.
Hope you enjoy.
