Very obscure topic, however I'm very curious about it.

In studying the Fenian Raids it's apparent a majority of the soldiers in the Fenian Brotherhood were Irish-American Union veterans, however it is stated in at least a few sources that there were Confederate veterans with them as well that partook in the invasion(s) of Canada.
Given that a large amount of Irish did serve the Confederacy, it would make sense. However, I can't seem to find any individual examples.

Does anyone know, or know where I can find, the names of the Confederate veterans among the Fenians, if there are any? I would very much appreciate it.
