The American Civil War (1861-65) was one of the most important formative events in the history of the United States. There is a wealth of evidence about the campaigns by the Welsh who were fighitng in them, because there were literally thousands of Welsh-speaking soldiers fighting in the Union (Northern) Army. The resources shared here shed light on their experiences, including vivid descriptions of some of the most famous events of the war. This will be of particular interest to history students at Swansea, Aberystwyth and Bangor Universities undertaking the second year module 'American Civil War'.
