Irish Immigrants in the Land of Canaan: Letters and Memoirs from Colonial and Revolutionary America, 1675-1815. Uncle Swami: South Asians in America Today. In an unsuccessful attempt to streamline the immigration process for illegal immigrants, several measures have been proposed to encourage their legalization, including most recently the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act (DREAM Act). The DREAM Act, though it never passed, was proposed to offer a path to legal residency for the children of illegal immigrants who came to the United.

In 1846 an Irish Immigrant in New York named alexander Stewart opened a business called the Marble Dry-Goods Palace. By doing so, he gave the world something completely nwe - the department store. Before this, no-one (1) else tried to bring together such a wide range of goods (2) under a single roof.

I shall be glad," remarked a New England surgeon surveying the somewhat riotous goings-on with a touch of.

I shall be glad," remarked a New England surgeon surveying the somewhat riotous goings-on with a touch of complacent contempt, "if they fight as eagerly as they ate their ox, and drank their wine. Among the spectators of these rude festivities stood a youth whose otherwise pleasing countenance was so clouded that one seeing it could hardly fail to wonder what troubled him thus deeply. Henceforward he had but one purpose in life – to serve his country in the field, and in view of what he had suffered it is easy to understand with what impatience he awaited the advance of the English against Crown Point, and how he chafed at the delay which seemed to him inexcusable.

Peter Cassidy of Lawrence, Massachusetts, was a well-known Irish immigrant whose "poor man's rhyme" documented the daily goings-on within one of the largest and most vibrant immigrant communities in New England, during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

  • If your from New England and especially around the Boston area or your old Irish family from way back worked at any of the mills in the Lowell area you will love this book...it is and interesting account of families trying to make it and the hard work the had to endure just to have a small shanty..My grandfather was from this area and to read about the people is very interesting..

  • This was great! Being raised in Lawrence, Mass, I found this right up my alley. I have Irish on my father's side and both my dad and his father were formen at the Arlington mills up on Broadway. I love the history, the nostalgia and the poetry. I included a few poems in my book about the area "A Summer with Charlie" now also listed on Amazon. I always wondered where I got my poetry inclination. It wasn't in my immediate family. I think I got it via osmosis from the type of man described in this book. I must have just breathed it in with all the mill smoke, dust, dirt and sweat. This is a good one. It easy history.

  • The View from Shanty Pond is a great find if you are interested in reading about the lives of NE Irish immigrants who lived and worked in mill cities like Lawrence and Lowell, Massachusetts.

    The book is very well written. It describes many aspects of life in Lawrence as seen through the eyes and poems of Peter Cassidy ("the Shanty Pond poet"). Cassidy lived from 1861 to 1938. Cassidy's poems are very down to earth and at times touching in their sincerity and simplicity.

    The author explains the historical background of the period (and the poems) using just the right level of detail. The subjects covered in the book include work in and strikes against the textile mills, the role of religion and politics in immigrant life, sports (baseball and boxing), saloons, World War I, Prohibition, and the Depression.

    If you enjoy an account of real people living their lives through tumultuous times, you will enjoy this book.
