Year in Review 2021: #5

As it turns out, January 7, 2021, was one of our single best days on the blog. We’re counting down the ten most-read posts written in 2021, and we are now cracking the Top Five—and, as it happens, the fifth-most-read post comes on the same day as our sixth-most-read-post.

In the movie Gods and Jacksons…er, we mean, Gods and Generals…Confederate Irishmen lament the assault of Federal Irishmen directly in their front.
