One-third of the soldiers who fought for the Union Army during the American Civil War were immigrants, and nearly 1-in-10 slaves and freed slaves. The Union Army included a significant number of soldiers who had immigrated from Germany, Ireland, France, Italy, Poland, England, Scotland and more.

Did you know that at the end of the American Civil War that the African Americans in the Union Army outnumbered the entire Confederate Army?

Would seem that immigrants and African Americans had a significant role in that war and did their part to ‘Make America Great Again’.
