#OnThisDay 1862 At the Battle of Port Republic, Irishmen of the 6th Louisiana Infantry attacked Union guns, captured them & turned them on the Union Army. This helped win the battle. The Union was led by Tyrone man James Shields (though he wasn’t on the field).
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.
