The 69th New York Infantry, 1st Battalion consisting of Co. A - B - C - F - H - I - K, 79th New New York Infantry Co.B and 1st Pennsylvania Artillery Battery B have decided to form a proper and relaxed Semi-realism Brigade. We also creating this hoping to work together as a proper Brigade in game all fighting under the same flag of the Irish Brigade. This Brigade is EU/NA

History of the Brigade
Motto: "Riam Nar Dhruid O Spairn Lann"
The Irish Brigade was an infantry brigade, consisting predominantly of Irish Americans, that served in the Union Army in the American Civil War. The designation of the first regiment in the brigade, the 69th New York Infantry, or the "Fighting 69th", continued in later wars. The Irish Brigade was known in part for its famous war cry, the "Faugh a Ballaugh", which is an anglicization of the Irish phrase, fág an bealach, meaning "clear the way". According to Fox's Regimental Losses, of all Union army brigades, only the 1st Vermont Brigade and Iron Brigade suffered more combat dead than the Irish Brigade during America's Civil War.
