    More than 27 million Americans today can trace their lineage to the Scots, whose bloodline was stained by centuries of continuous warfare along the border between England and Scotland, and later in the bitter settlements of England's Ulster Plantation in Northern Ireland. When hundreds of thousands of Scots-Irish migrated to America in the eighteenth century, they brought with them not only long experience as rebels and outcasts but also unparalleled skills as frontiersmen and guerrilla fighters.

One man's view

by Lukemagic on Apr 17, 2012

Gives new insight into the foundations of our country as influenced by Scots-Irish immigrants and their personal experiences and ideals. What is not included to any extent is their influence on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Delaware and Virginia, but the overall idea can be applied to this area as well. Easy to read.

Very interesting book

by nohead on Mar 29, 2012

Mr. Webb lays to rest a lot of "revisionist" history with this book. Too bad it is not required reading in high school and college curriculum. People would better understand the corruption in government that we have had for 150 years.

by bugdoc on Sep 11, 2008

a very personalized history of the Socts/Irish migration to the new world and their influence upon the American way of life. Webb speaks from the Southern perspective and from his experiences in battle and in Congress.
