Irish in Wisconsin recounts the nature of the Irish immigrant experience in Wisconsin and its connection to the larger story of Irish immigration into this country. The history of the Irish in Wisconsin mirrors that of other Wisconsin ethnic groups in many ways, but is most intriguing for those places where the Irish history diverges. This book, the first totally new edition to the Wisconsin Historical Society's Ethnic History Series in over twenty years, shows the impact of the Irish on the state's early development and politics. The Irish cultural contribution to the state is explored as is the current resurgence in Irish pride and identity. Irish in Wisconsin tells this story with solid historical analysis, first-hand accounts, and numerous photographs.
