The Scotch-Irish: A Social History

by

The Scotch-Irish: A Social History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dispelling much of what he terms the 'mythology' of the Scotch-Irish, James Leyburn provides an absorbing account of their heritage. He discusses their life in Scotland, when the essentials of their character and culture were shaped; their removal to Northern Ireland and the action of their residence in that region upon their outlook on life; and their successive migrations to America, where they settled especially in the back-country of Pennsylvania, Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia, and then after the Revolutionary War were in the van of pioneers to the west.

About the Author

The late James G. Leyburn was professor of sociology at Washington and Lee University.
