This work analyzes how the free, African-American and Irish, Catholic immigrant communities viewed and experienced death leading up to and during the U.S. Civil War. Inspired by Drew Gilpin Faust's This Republic of Suffering, this thesis explores how these communities used death and sacrifice in order to obtain their place in American society and their rights as U.S. citizens.
