Ethnic and Immigrant Troops in the Civil War

Here’s a panel of historians discussing German, Irish, and African American soldiers in the Civil War. The panel includes Professor Christian Keller of the US Army War College, Professor Earl Mulderink of Southern Utah University, and Professor Craig Warren of Penn State Erie.

The video’s description reads, “Historians discussed the role and reception of ethnic and immigrant troops during the Civil War. They talked about German, Irish, and African American soldiers as well as the newspapers that served these communities. This session was part an annual symposium on the 19th century press and the Civil War hosted by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. The school provided this video.”
