Transatlantic Lives: The Irish Experience in Colonial America details the careers of a selection of Irish emigrants to North America in the colonial period.
Those chosen are a representative sample of some of the more notable figures. Colonial administrators, soldiers and clergymen predominate. The selection also includes educators, doctors, writers, artists, printers, merchants and even a (female) pirate to give some sense of the diversity of such emigrants, and their varying contributions to the economic and cultural development of the colonies.
