Author: C. Hanna
Year: (1901) 2007
Few topics are so controversial as the origin and nature of the "Scotch-Irish", and the debate over the very existence of such a "people" rages on in the 21st century. First published in 1901, this monumental study first examines the Scotch-Irish in the American Revolution and their impact upon the wording of the Constitution and then turns to New England to deny its role as the crucible of American ideas.
Hanna then gives an extended study of the Scots over many centuries, moving chapter by chapter down to the plantations of King James VI in Ulster and the history of the occupation of that part of Ireland by Protestants from Scotland and England. He next examines the American colonies and the emigration from Scotland and Ulster to North America.
The final portion of this 2-volume study is devoted to extensive appendices on a wide variety of topics, including essays on the genealogies of the US presidents, the Ragman Rolls, the Scottish Protestant martyrs, conditions of the Ulster Plantations, family names in Scotland, the location of Scottish families in Ireland, extracts from various Irish and Scottish annals. There are extensive notes, bibliographies, name lists and others items of interest to those with a Scotch-Irish heritage or interest.
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.
