New York's Fighting Sixty-Ninth

New York's Fighting Sixty-Ninth
By: John Mahon

Hardcover. 268 pages.

Formed in 1851 by Irish immigrants, the Fighting Sixty-Ninth has served with distinction since the Civil War. The regiment's flagstaff boasts 23 streamers (for each campaign) and 62 silver battle rings (for each battle), more than any other regiment in the United States Army at the close of the World War II. Initially known as 69th New York State Militia (and seeing action under that name at the Battle of Bull Run), the regiment later "cadred" the 69th New York Volunteers. This is a complete illustrated history of the regiment's service in the Irish Brigade and the Rainbow Division.
