#OnThisDay 1863 Menomen O’Donnell from Donegal was one of eight Irishmen who were awarded the Medal of Honor for their actions in the Battle of Vicksburg. O’Donnell & his men attacked the enemy fort & when the attack wavered, he rallied his men & planted their flag in the enemy fort.
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.
