Product Details
By David G. Holmes

The Irish have a rich and long history in Wisconsin, dating back to the nineteenth century. Immigrants quickly formed communities in Beloit, Fond du Lac, and Sturgeon Bay, as well as in rural Trempeauleau County. They worked at day labor, railroad construction, lumbering, fishing, and of course farming. Some of those early Irish communities have disappeared; others have experienced succeeding generations of Irish Americans settling in these Wisconsin cities and small towns and influencing them with their old country charm.

David G. Holmes, a doctoral student in Irish history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is studying law at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a native of Delaware, where he now resides.
