Charge of the Irish Brigade - Civil War Art Print
Battle of Fallen Timbers, Tennessee
April 8th, 1862
This artwork depicts the brave charge of the 28th Massachusetts Regiment of the hard-fighting Irish Brigade as they assault Marye's Heights just outside the town of Fredericksburg Virginia. The 28th Massachusetts being the newcomers to the brigade was the only regiment to carry the green silk embroidered Irish flag with harp and cloud burst made by Tiffany and Company of New York City. The green flags of the New York regiments of the brigade had been sent home and were in the process of being replaced by new ones which had not yet arrived. The men of the Irish Brigade are shown in this gorgeous oil painting moving forward at right shoulder shift in the face of the most intense Confederate artillery and musket fire yet seen in war; caps adorned with green Virginia Boxwood shouting "Faugh-a-Ballagh!" which means "Clear the Way" in Gaelic. This beautiful artwork immortalizes the valor of that famous charge.
