No Irish Need Apply A History of The Irish in America, Circa 1850
What others are saying
"No Irish Need Apply". All the rabid anti-immigration people should get a freaking history book and read how most of their ancestors were not wanted and used and abused for cheap labor. This story in this country (United States) is as old as this country.
This is a great thing to include in a unit that discuses the trials and tribulations that early immigrants faced.
Tell me again how Irish were never discriminated against and how you automatically get the best of everything when you're white.
One of the great mysteries in my past will be that of my second great grandfather, Patrick Murphy. Lost, among the many Irish souls that came before me, he has remained. I think that he has become somewhat of an illusion or maybe even a dream of my.
