Product Description

Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (411 pages)
Author: C. Bolton
Publisher: ScotPress

The majority of the histories of the Scots-Irish concentrate upon the character of those settling in and their impact upon 18th-century America, and particularly upon the ideology of the American Revolution. This work is more limited in time and scope to the period 1700-1750 and concentrates more upon the conditions in Ireland and the colonies during that period.

It begins with a survey of Ireland and New England around 1714, sketching the situation there at the time of the Hanoverian succession in the three kingdoms and the failure of the Jacobite Revolution of 1715. It then turns to Maryland, Pennsylvania and South Carolina around 1718 and to Ulster in the period 1714-1718. Bolton thereby sets the stage for the vast movement of peoples out of Ireland during the first half of the 18th century. He then studies the nature of the Presbyterian ministry as it moved between Ireland and America, examines the famous five ships which arrived in 1718 and finally turns to New England, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and the Carolinas to show the impact of the arrival of the Scots-Irish. This is a more historical and analytical study and one which is still of interest years after its first publication.

This CD consists of scans of the whole of the original book, which can be browsed, enlarged and printed if required. Please note: it is not searchable.
