#OnThisDay 1862 At the Battle of Antietam, the bloodiest single day of the American Civil War, the Irish Brigade attack Confederate lines along the Sunken Road, aptly named Bloody Lane. The Irish Brigade suffer 113 KIA, 422 WIA & 5 MIA or over 50% of their men.
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.
