This Week in the Civil War

Jun 25, 1861
On June 25, 1861, the 9th Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry paraded through the streets of Boston before boarding ships to Washington D.C. and active duty. It was not the first regiment of the war to parade through Boston, but it was the first entirely Irish regiment to do so.
