Scotch Irish Pioneers - A detailled account to Scotch Irish (Ulster Scot) migration to America in the 1700's
The following is a list of chapters from the book, "Scotch Irish Pioneers in Ulster and America", written by Charles Knowles Bolton, and published in 1910.
The following pages attempts a systematic treatment of the beginning of a migration of settlers of Scotch and English descent from the north of Ireland tothe New World. Parker, Perry, Green, Hanna and other writers have collected much of general history and tradition ; and they have so pictured the Scotch traits developed under Irish skies, that Scotch Irish blood, once a reproach, is now cause for pride. But the conditions in Ireland before the migration, the voyage across the ocean, the emigrants as they appeared to early observers these phases of the story have now for the first time been treated in detail, drawing upon hitherto unexplored sources. If a large part of the American population traces back to Ulster, the early religious, political and economic life of the valleys of the Foyle and the Bann should interest many, for many, whether they are aware of it or not, are descended from the Scotch Irish. Clergymen and statesmen have from generation to generation extolled the rugged virtues of these pioneers, and a closer study of their lives will, it is hoped, deepen the hold which they already have upon our affections. Their story is both brave and powerful.
