The Scots and Scotch-Irish: A Comparative Study in Early American Ethnicity

The Scots and the Scotch-Irish who came to colonial America were, by and large, considered by the English to be an inferior variety of Briton. Finding most of the land along the Atlantic seacoast already inhabited, Scottish and Scotch Irish freemen and indentured servants moved into the west and southwest where they early developed two separate but similar patterns of ethnicity considered within the boundaries of their origins, language, education, religion, and association. To publish a monograph which will contribute not only to a better understanding of the Scots and Scotch-Irish colonial experience but to a comprehension of how the societal processes work within a framework of ethnicity and subsequent assimilation or pluralism.
