Battle of Ridgeway 1866


Images from a reenactment earlier this year
Another army of 1866 was the Fenian (Irish Republican) army that invaded Canada and fought at the battle of Ridgeway. Apparently made up from Civil War veterans. And of course the Canadian force that met them.
See here for more information on the Fenian forces.
