This chapter argues that the Irish part in the southern war effort has probably been exaggerated. However, there is little question that the Irish insinuated themselves into the civic religion of the Lost Cause, thus helping to frame how the regional past would be remembered.

Keywords: Irish; southern war effort; Lost Cause
