Soon other Irish settlers came joined by others who had previously emigrated from Northern Ireland and were living in New Hampshire. During the 1750s and 1760s, most of the northern Irish who came to Nova Scotia were third and fourth-generation descendants of Lowland Scots, who moved to the northern Irish province of Ulster. They are called 'Scots from Ireland' or 'Ulster Scots,' since few of them had native Irish ancestry. These immigrants founded Truro and Londonderry in Nova Scotia. Others settled at Chignecto and in Granville, New Dublin, New Donegal (Pictou) and in parts of Hants County.
For a long time in American history, there has been a desire for “Irish” music. What qualifies as “Irish” has been left to interpretation; a concept that will be further explored in this thesis. The first Irish Catholic immigrants in seventeenth century America were, in many cases, indentured servants and treated poorly. The music the Irish brought with them took on romantic associations among the white Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASP) Americans, as well as among the Irish themselves. While my thesis focuses on the music that was popular in vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley roughly between 1880 and 1930, it is necessary to look further back at the history of the music and socio-political state that Irish immigrants and Irish-Americans had faced in first coming to America.
The colonists were unhappy about the unreasonable taxes, no representation in the parliament, and felt unfair to pay for the war that British fought against the French. The revolution quickly spread, and as we know now the American Colonies got their independence and are now The United States of
One secondary source consisted of “The Papers of Thomas Jefferson.” Julian Boyd and Barbara Oberg were the writers of this famous book series that was published by Princeton University Press, Princeton, 1950–2004. The second secondary source consisted of “Major Butler’s Legacy — Five Generations of a Slaveholding Family” published by the University of Georgia Press, Athens, 1987. The last secondary source is “The Life of Albert Gallatin” by Henry Adams, published by Peter Smith, New York, 1879. Mr. Murray not only just had secondary sources he had many primary sources the first consisting of a book called “The Southern Experience in the American Revolution.” This book was written by Jeffery Crow and published by the University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, in 1978. It really showed how the south reacted and felt about the American Revolution.
The Appalachian region is the most complex geographical unit or area to define, based on characteristics and functions of culture. This cultural area is 205,000 square miles and extends from northern Pennsylvania towards northeastern Missippi, which it composed of parts of 13 states and 420 counties. Twenty-five Million, people who live in Appalachia, considered this region as a native or home culture area based on personal perceptions. Most people believe Appalachia, as a formal culture region, is upon a measurable set of common cultural, human, and anthropogenic traits. Many people in Appalachia are descendants of several European immigrants such as the Irish-Scotish, Germans, and the Welsh.
Abe Lincoln knew Walt Whitman from previous years and would even often recite some of his poems out loud or just by himself. Walt Whitman was generally inspired by Abe Lincoln and wrote many poems inspired from the president himself. When Walt Whitman traveled away from Washington D.C on 1865 to go and visit his family in Brooklyn, Walt Whitman started to go over one of his new poems called “Drum-Taps” and shortly later he received the news of Abe Lincoln's assassination. Walt Whitman with crushed within hearing about his idol being shot in the head, and to pay ovation to Abe Lincoln for all he did, Walt Whitman wrote his best known poem “O Captain My Captain”. In that poem he explained how Lincoln united the nation and succeeded in winning the Civil War, but was not able to live to see the aftermath.
In 1850 James Goold had a central contribution to the defense of Irish immigrated orphans who were attacked by officialdom because of inability to assimilate into an urban community. Through the decade James led Catholic oppositions to Anglican claims of precedence at the government functions. The dispute culminated when James and his clergy boycotted the queen’s birthday levee in 1859. By then all his efforts to make the catholic churches a recognized influence within the colony had been a great success; consequently the physical growth of the church was more obvious. James Goold had many needs for the church and for help to the colony’s he had seen.

Liberty or Death “Give me Liberty or give me Death!” It was 1775 the time were colonist were trying to break free from British troops and Government. Colonist steadily paying unfair taxes, on all newspaper and public documents which the British Parliament named the “ Stamp Act”. The colonist feared that they would be overruled and would never get there freedom. The only thing they wanted was to get their rights and a new government.

The Townshend Act (1777) was to apply taxes to all imported glass, lead, paint, paper and tea. The colonists felt like it was an unjust and unfair practice to have “No taxation without representation” and that they were not represented by the British Parliament. King George II sent troops the America because of the boycotts of British goods. After the Boston Tea Party came the Battles of Lexington and Concord, where the colonist took up arms and prepared for battle. The Boston Massacre in 1770 was the turning point the America to gain its independence from the British.
Before the end of the eighteenth century, four more influxes of Scotch-Irish withdrew Ireland for America and a few hundred thousand Ulstermen settled in about each area of the English provinces. Pleased, Presbyterian, and eager, the Scotch-Irish significantly influenced the districts they possessed. They were a beautiful gathering of individuals who made our national character.
After Lexington and Concord, the Second Continental Congress didn’t pursue independence, but they did select George Washington as the military commander. From April 1775 to July 1776, many colonists were confused for their feelings of independence; some colonists wanted to mend differences, while others wanted to fight Britain. The British fought back hard and strong by burning down towns and attacking the colonists. Thomas Paine’s book, Common Sense, argued that the colonists out grew the need for any English rule and they should be given independence. Finally, Thomas Jefferson was appointed to create a draft of the Declaration of Independence, and it was approved by Congress on July 4, 1776.
