Pittsburgh’s ‘Other’ Irish: Before the Robber Barons Pump House

Saturday, August 17 @ 1:30 pm

Free

The phrase “Scotch-Irish Presbyterian” might seem synonymous with self-righteous robber barons. But take a further look back to a Western PA of farms and artisans’ workshop—when Pittsburgh’s Irish were mostly Presbyterians whose religious beliefs discouraged them from the pursuit of wealth for its own sake.  Come hear Dr. Peter Gilmore discuss his recent books Irish Presbyterians and the Shaping of Western Pennsylvania 1770-1830  and Exiles of ’98: Ulster Presbyterians in the US.
