#OnThisDay 1865 The American Civil War drew to a close as General Lee surrendered to General Grant. Roughly 180,000 Irish born men served in this war. The war’s first deaths are two Irish men at Fort Sumter & General Smyth from Cork was the last General to die.
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.
