Summary "This thorough analysis of the Kossuth emigres fighters explores their motivations and the military role they played during the American Civil War, often challenging the traditional hero-making mechanisms of ethnic history-writing in the process. The included biographical list of all Hungarian-born Civil War participants fills a longstanding gap in Civil War genealogy. "--Provided by publisher.
