Summary:
Irish Americans began immigrating to America in the early 1800s. Primarily Catholics, they were not allowed to own land in Ireland without first converting to Protestantism. A second wave of immigrants came to North America when Ireland was experiencing a great potato famine. During the Civil War, many Irish-American soldiers were decorated for their service, and by the late 1800s, Irish Americans had become a part of mainstream America, advancing both economically and politically. The ongoing conflict in Northern Ireland has provided a source of solidarity among Irish Americans, and annual St. Patrick's Day parades bring Irish Americans together. Part of the Multicultural Peoples of North America Video Series, a compelling collection that celebrates the heritage of different cultural groups in North America.

Only available in the US.
