What do Mark Twain, Neil Armstrong and John McCain have in common? They're all descendants of a merry group of Scots-Irish braggarts that crossed the Atlantic from Ireland in the early 1700s and settled in America's South. Also known as the "Other Irish", this bunch of patriotic, rebellious, fervently religious rascals gave America the NRA, at least fourteen presidents, decisive victories in the Revolutionary War, a third of today's US Military, country music, Star Wars, the Munchkins, American-style Democracy and even the religious right. Yet few are familiar with them or their contributions to American culture. Now author and documentary maker Karen McCarthy shines a probing light on this fascinating topic, illuminating the extent to which the Scots-Irish helped weave the fabric of the American nation.
