Irish Americans, Kem Knapp Sawyer

1 Irish Americans
Kem Knapp Sawyer
64 pages, 5.5 x 4, paperback / softcover, History Compass
The Irish crossed the Atlantic in pursuit of work, prosperity, adventure, religious tolerance, and freedom. In the mid- 1840s, thousands fled their homeland as a result of the potato famine, and flocked to New York, Boston, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Savannah, and Chicago. Job discrimination and prejudice did not dissuade the newest Americans from joining the Union army in the Civil War and from helping to rebuild the nation after the war. This book presents their struggles in their native !and, their journeys to America, and their lives in a new land. It includes documents from the average person, and from the many Irish who made contributions to American industry, politics, the arts, and sports.

The popular Perspectives on History series contains compelling firsthand accounts from colonists to astronauts and is widely used as supplemental material in the study of history and literature in grades 6- College Level. Use of primary sources through excerpts from journals
Price: 7.95 USD
