A museum in Civitella del Tronto, Italy details Italian participation with the Confederacy in the American Civil War. Following the Italian Wars of Unification, where the independent southern Italian states were conquered, thousands of Italians fled to the American South. Entire regiments were made up of these Italian immigrants/refugees and many were veterans of the wars that saw their previous homelands conquered, only for the same thing to happen to them on another continent.
