I'm living in Ireland and have been involved in a website dealing with the life and military career of Myles Keogh. Keogh originally hailed from Ireland and fought in Europe before being recruited by the Union army in '62. After serving for three years in the Federal ranks, he was commissioned a captain in the 7th cavalry where he eventually met his fate along with Custer and 200+ other troopers at the Little Big Horn.
I've acquired a whole new interest in the American Civil War since undertaking research for the site so I'm happy to have landed here (just in time for St. Patrick's Day!). Pop over and have a look at the site.

This is absolutely fascinating. Seriously cool stuff. If you don't mind me asking, where in Ireland are you from?
Haven't met very many people with interest in the American Civil War from here, so i'm just curious.
