About


I have dedicated much of the past decade to telling the story of the Irish in the American Civil War. My award-winning website www.irishamericancivilwar.com was established in 2010 and has grown into one of the longest running and most extensive history blogs in Ireland. The core principal of the site is to make large-amounts of original research freely available to as wide a community as possible, something in which I have invested heavily—both in terms of finance and time. Today the site contains hundreds of articles and resources relating to Irish in 19th Century emigrants. I want to continue this work in the years to come, and to develop new and innovative ways of telling the remarkable tale of the Irish experience. Your support as a patron is crucial to maintaining my work on the Irish during the era of the American Civil War, and together we can bring more and more of these remarkable stories to light. 

The invaluable support of Patrons will assist in covering the running costs of both the website and research, without which I would not be able to create new content and resources. Every donation is important, and in return Patrons will receive access to exclusive Rewards. In addition, you will be enabling me to pursue major new projects, on the site, such as county specific ebooks, the Atlantic Widows Project, and many more.
