Images: Book, 'Finnigans, Slaters, and Stonepeggers'
Author Vincent Feeney, longtime adjunct professor of history at the
University of Vermont, has written the first book that peels back the
Yankee mythos and examines the surprisingly rich, true story of the
Irish in Vermont, from the first steady trickle of colonial pioneers
to the flood of famine refugees and onward. From Fort Ticonderoga to
Civil War battlefields and up until the years after World War II,
discover how the Irish arrived, survived, fought, labored, organized,
worshipped, played, and managed to prosper. This is a surprisingly
behind-the-scenes American success story that has never been fully
told until now.
