French Canadians in New England: Religion and Militant Survivance, 1870-1930

To study French Canadians throughout all of New England during 1870-1930. This study will focus upon the interrelationship between survivance (the French Canadian term for ethnic and national survival) and religion, the debate among French Canadian immigrants and their descendants (Franco-Americans) as to whether militance or moderation was the correct way to maintain survivance and consequent struggles between militant Franco-Americans and the Irish hierarchy of the Catholic Church.
