We know theirs to have been the hands that helped build the nation's canals and railroads, the transport for so many immigrant groups making their way to the newly formed state of Wisconsin in the mid-nineteenth century. Yet the stories of Irish people in Wisconsin and their role in that state's history became almost invisible as time passed. The Irish in Wisconsin recounts the nature of the Irish immigrant experience in Wisconsin both in relation to other ethnic groups and to the larger story of Irish immigration into this country. David Holmes shows the impact of the Irish on the state's early development and politics. He explores the Irish cultural contribution to the state and the current resurgence in Irish pride and identity. The Irish in Wisconsin tells this story with solid historical analysis, first-hand accounts, and rare photographs.
