HISTORY

Meagher's Irish Brigade war formed in September of 1861. The brigade initially was comprised of the 63rd New York Infantry, the 69th New York Infantry, the 88th New York Infantry, and the largely protestant 29th Massachusetts Infantry. Their commander was General Thomas Francis Meagher, an Irish revolutionary and hero of the 1848 Young Irelander revolution. The General actually is credited with the creation of the modern Irish flag. Meagher's brigade was assigned to Major General Israel Richardson's First Division, Major General Edwin Sumner's II Corps. The brigade fought valiantly, seeing combat for nearly five days straight during the Battles of the Seven Days. During the peninsula campaign, the brigade earned a reputation as ferocious fighters.


ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION
The Irish Volunteer Brigade (IVB) was formed in late November of 2019. The brigade was initially formed out of the 69th New York companies K and I, and the 1st New York Light Artillery Battery B. Since then, the brigade has grown into the large unit it is today. The IVB is highly involved in the community, fighting in both NA and EU events. We are one of the largest and most respected groups in the community.
