The Irish involvement in the American Civil War is often forgotten, though the writers at Irish American Civil War are trying to change that. Through stories and historical records, the team focuses on the different effects the Civil War had on the different parts and people of Ireland. New to their efforts is the #ForgottenIrish hashtag, which will circulate on Twitter. If you don’t use Twitter, you can still see the various posts via Storify. See the link below for that site or follow the new Twitter hashtag celebrating Irish history!
