Irish (and others) in the American Civil War

Jane E. MacNamara wrote to draw to my attention the website Irish in the American Civil War. In particular she pointed to a post that goes beyond the Irish, Mapping Mainland Europe’s American Civil War Widows & Dependent Parents: An Online Resource. 
That post is part of a project based on those listed in the 1883 List of Pensioners on the Roll.
While I don't normally cover US or mainland Europe resources there is a bit of information of Canadian and Scottish, as well as much of US/ Irish interest on the site.
The easiest way to find it is using the search facility labelled SEARCH OVER 480 ARTICLES ON THE IRISH IN THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR on the right-hand-side of the main website.
Additional posts covering other areas, perhaps including the UK, Ireland and Canada, are promised.
Thanks to Jane for the tip. Jane will be speaking at the OGS conference in June -- a reminder that you have only until the end of the month to get in on early bird conference registration pricing.
