By William Corby, Lawrence Frederick Kohl. In the summer of 1863 the Irish Brigade was no longer the impressive force it had once been. Nearly two years of war had worn its thousands down to a small band of seasoned veterans. Because of their fighting reputation they had always been where the action was hottest: at Fair Oaks, Gaines Mill, and Savage Station on the Peninsula; in the Bloody Lane at Antietam; before the Stone Wall at Fredericksburg.

The memoirs reveal the important role that these chaplains played in the war. Corby's own faith emanates from his pages and makes more bearable some of the tragic events - such as his attempt to console a young soldier about to be executed for desertion - that his narrativedescribes.

Of all the units that fought in the Civil War, the Irish Brigade seems to be the most recognized. Comprised of troops from New York who were mostly Irish-Catholics, this unit proved itself in some of the most important battles of the war. A principal player in this unit was the chaplin, Father William Corby. Through his devotions and his willingness to be ever-present at the encampments, as well as at the front, the souls of the Irish Brigade were always cared for. A combination biography, history of the Irish Brigade, day-to-day look into the lives of Civil War soldiers, and reflection on the Catholic faith, this book is wonderfully written in Corby's own words. All the aspects of his life come together here. Recommended for public and academic libraries.

I truly enjoyed the book Memoirs of Chaplain Life by William Corby. Father William Corby, a Catholic, served as a chaplain to the Irish Brigade in the Army of the Potomac. Corby relates the many trials and dangers that he suffers over his three years of service. He tells the stories of narrow escapes from the enemy fire. He ministers to the men, "hears their confession," and often dose duties not required by his being chaplain. The book gives an interesting look into the religious life, as well as everyday camp life in a Civil War Army. I will say that the book is hard to get through, but it is worth the time to read. Father Corby is an interesting character.

Memoirs of Chaplain Life: 3 Years in the Irish Brigade with the Army of the Potomac is written by Father William Corby, a Catholic Chaplain. I found this book to be an excellent book for my research because it really showed how life was from the perspective of a non-combatant. I just loved this book because you just know that Father Corby is pulling real life into it and everything just makes feel like you are actually there. Some parts are not exactly exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat, so it's definitely written for someone who loves history in every sense. I just love reading about when Father Corby gives general absolution to the Brigade. So moving and awe-inspiring.

Should be a required read for anyone who truly loves history, the Civil War, the Irish Brigade, wants to be a Chaplain, or loves their Irish heritage.

Father Corby's Irish Brigade memoir provides a very valuable and interesting record of the Civil War. His testimony gives the reader a first-hand account of life in the Church and in the Army.
In some sections, the memoir is not terribly exciting; it is for the history buff who wants to know more than which general won a given battle. The book tells of the great and small trials of army life. Its value comes from the author's testimony about the lives of the soldiers and their experiences.
The book will best suit those who possess a knowledge of the war, as Father Corby's passing mention of campaigns and generals' names will be lost on the uninitiated.
I strongly recommend this book to those interested in Civil War and Irish history.
