COMING SOON – From Ireland to America: Irish Immigrant Lives in the US

More than 70 million people worldwide claim Irish ancestry, including 45 million Irish-Americans. Using historical and archaeological case studies, Rotman explores the many contexts into which the Irish settled in the US during the second half of the 19th century–from big cities on the East Coast, like New York City; to smaller towns of the Midwest, including South Bend, Indiana; to mining communities, such as Butte, Montana. The unique communities into which the Irish settled significantly shaped their experiences as immigrants and influenced their success in their new country.
