Catholic Volunteer Soldiers of the Civil War from Philadelphia

This presentation by Dr. Waskie will highlight the bravery and heroism of those Catholics from Philadelphia who served as soldiers in the Civil War. It will also explore their complex motivations for fighting, from those who opposed the extension of slavery to those immigrants who sought to demonstrate their loyalty to their adoptive nation.
