Excerpt from Address of John Dwyer, Hudson Falls, N. Y., Major 63d N. Y. V., Senior Officer Living of the Irish Brigade Association: The 52d Anniversary, Held in New York City, December 12, 1914, Union Square Hotel
In our youthful days - in the Great Rebellion - one hundred t... housand men on the side of the Union and as many more in the Confederate ranks, was an unusual thing. Today the War of Nations beyond the seas, three millions of young manhood of six or more countries are engaged in deadly strife. Instead of our one to three days' battle, in the old world they are counted in consecutive weeks and months; and if only fifteen or twenty thousand fall in a day, it is a mere skirmish. Should this slaughter continue, the leading nations of Europe will in truth be nothing short of wilderness.
