The history of the Irish Infantry Brigade Regiments and Irish brigade Battle flags

The Irish infantry brigade regiments consisted mostly of Irish Americans and recent immigrants from Ireland who had served in the Union Army in the American Civil War. The 69th NY Infantry or “Fighting 69th” Irish brigade regiment continued in later wars. The Irish infantry brigade regiments took on some of the heaviest losses during the US Civil War. The Irish Brigade Regiment was known for its war cry in Gaelic “fág an bealach!” or “Clear The Way!”

Irish Battle Flags & Banners of the Civil War

The Irish brigade flag and Irish brigade regiment flags generally share a very common design that includes an Irish green or kelly green background. Many Irish battle flags also feature a white cloud with a harp over the top and a golden lightning shooting from out of the cloud.

The various Irish infantry brigade regiments had unique identifiers at the bottom of each Irish brigade flag, but generally the Irish infantry brigade regiments mimicked each other's designs. Each Irish brigade regiment carried their Irish brigade flag into battle, so the flags became a rallying cry for the Irish infantry brigade regiments. Much Irish blood was spilled on the Irish brigade flag for the good of the Union, and many an Irish brigade regiment fought proudly to keep their flags aloft.
