their service had been enough or that it was more accepted by the native neighbors in the Midwest, while those in the Northeast still felt the cold winds of native hostility. Whatever the reason, this book ultimately high- lights the diversity of the Irish involvement in the Union cause. Keating’s excellent work indicates that more studies of “Green Flag” regiments, or of Irish soldiers, the majority of whom did not serve in one of those regi- ments, could enhance further our understanding of the war’s role in Irish integration into the United States.
