 1.  Irish in Wisconsin
David G. Holmes, with a foreword by Tommy Makem
72 pages, 6 x 9, 40 b/w illus, paperback, Wisconsin Historical Society Press
The first completely new addition in more than twenty years to the Wisconsin Historical Society's popular Ethnic Series
History books tell us how Irish immigrants built the nation's canals and railroads, the transport for so many immigrant groups making their way to the newly formed state of Wisconsin in the mid-nineteenth century. Yet the stories of Irish people in Wisconsin and their role in our state's history became almost invisible as time passed. Irish in Wisconsin recounts the nature of the Irish immigrant experience in Wisconsin both in relation to other ethnic groups and to the larger story of Irish immigration into this country. David G. Holmes shows the impact of the Irish on the state's early development and politics. He explores the Irish cultural contribution to the state and the current resurgence in Irish pride and identity. Irish in Wisconsin tells this story with solid historical analysis, first-hand accounts, and rare photographs.
