Ulster Presbyterians and the Scots Irish Diaspora, 1750–1764

  • Benjamin Bankhurst

About this book


Bankhurst examines how news regarding the violent struggle to control the borderlands of British North America between 1740 and 1760 resonated among communities in Ireland with familial links to the colonies. This work considers how intense Irish press coverage and American fundraising drives in Ireland produced empathy among Ulster Presbyterians.
