Current list January 30, 2007

I have researched the Irish Brigade for 22 years. Part of that work has been to track down the burial sites of men of the brigade.  If anyone knows of any other Irish Brigade burial in Calvary Cemetery, please email it to me, as I would like to add it to these lists.

63rd NY, 69th NY, 88th NY, 28th Mass., 116th Pa.
