One quarter of the Union Army were German immigrants, and the ones who fought with the Army of the Potomac sufferred terrible casualties through inept leadership, but were accused of cowerdice by those same inept commanders and made scape goats. The authors set the record straight in "Damn Dutch." Germans in the Civil War seem to be a hot topic lately. Keller also has a history of Genrmans at Chancellorsville, about how the Germans sufferred discrimination after that battle and the effect on the German immigrant population. Suhrer's The Flying Dutchmen, about a German regiment from Ohio, covers much the same ground, but it is a novel, not a history book. (A blast to read!) See "I also recommend" below.
