Description
Illustrated with large, captioned archival photos and engravings, up to 18 x 11 inches, this visual history of Irish immigration to America is a powerful depiction of the hardscrabble beginnings that many of them endured when they arrived, particularly in the mid-19th century. Yet as Irish Americans established themselves, this influx became a highly influential part of America's storyŚno fewer than 15 presidents have been Irish, and in the 1850s a full quarter of Boston's and New York City's populations were Irish. Railroad workers and garment workers, miners and political bosses, and famous Irish Americans like John F. Kennedy are all introduced here for readers 10 and up.
