Scots and Scotch Irish in Connecticut: A History. The Peoples of Connecticut Multicultural Ethnic Heritage Project, Number Five.
Stone, Frank Andrews
This monograph reviews the history of Scots and Scotch Irish settlements in Connecticut from the 17th century to the present. Intended primarily for adult readers, the pamphlet is part of a series of curriculum guides about ethnic groups in America. Historical information was obtained from oral histories, church and military records, and consultations with scholar-specialists. Written exclusively in an expository style, the pamphlet analyzes how conditions in Connecticut affected Scottish Americans, the ways in which they made an impact on Connecticut affairs, the situations in Scotland which prompted Scots to emigrate, and some cases in which citizens of Connecticut have influenced events in Scotland. Specifically, content includes 15 biographies of Scottish Americans, maps showing the origin of Scottish immigrants, roles of Connecticut Scots in the American Revolution and Civil War, and the Presbyterian church in Connecticut. The monograph concludes with a list of Scottish American fraternal organizations in Connecticut. (DL)
