1862, a battle was being fought right here in
Fredericksburg. One of the major battles to take place
during the second year of the American Civil War, it involved
brave Irish soldiers on both sides of the field.
The Irish Regiment, out of Georgia, was defending Marye's
Heights, just down the road from where you are sitting
today, and the Irish Brigade, out of Massachusetts, New
York, and Pennsylvania was told to take the hill at all
The cost was devastatingly high, and in the few days of
that battle, 5,300 Confederate troops and 12,600 Federal
troops were killed, wounded or missing. Almost two-thirds
of them fell before the wall trying to take Marye's Heights.
Here we celebrate the bravery of all of those men, in the
spirit of friendship and camaraderie, and hope everyone
can put aside their differences long enough to sit back and
enjoy a pint, the hospitality of the establishment, and the
atmosphere of people that make Fredericksburg unique.
