(p.51) Chapter 3 Irish Migration to the Colonial South
Rethinking the Irish in the American South

Patrick Griffin

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter offers a historian’s perspective on Irish migration to the colonial South. It argues that because the Scotch-Irish have been peculiarly lionized within southern culture, as iron-blooded storm troopers of civilizations and tough-minded exponents of Jacksonian Democracy, we must move beyond flattening histories that retain neat Irish dichotomies.
