This book addresses a neglected area of Irish emigration to America, that from Ulster in the nineteenth century. Studies of nineteenth and twentieth century Irish emigration have centered on the south and the west of Ireland. Or, when emigration from the north of Ireland has been studied, it has typically been concerned with the eighteenth century. This is a study of America Letters, the letters sent home to the north of Ireland from Ulster emigrants in America. Insofar as it is possible to illumine the mind of emigration, the letters of ordinary people help us to do so. The letters in this book are from three families - two Protestant, one Catholic - and they range in time-span between 1843 and 1932.
