Corcoran Legion Flag
Michael Corcoran was an Irish-born American Patriot who served in the Union Army with great distinction during the American Civil War. He entered the war as an officer of the famed NY "Fighting 69th" comprised heavily of Irish-born New York soldiers. From there, he became a confidant of President Abraham Lincoln due largely to his ability to muster soldiers into service under the banner of the "Corcoran Legion". His command as a Union general consisted of 5 full regiments of mostly Irish-American soldiers that served the remainder of the war. He perished in 1863 after being thrown from a horse. His legend for various deeds grew among Irish-American soldiers and the New York Irish American community in general, where he is remembered both for his service and his Fenian political activism.
