. This article published October 13 th ,1863 called to the Irish immigrants to vote against slavery. One valuable secondary source is Irish Americans: Gaining a Voice. 1996. I found several different chapters from this book in the Shapiro Library. The chapter Gaining a Voice examines Irish immigrants’ involvement in politics and unions which led to them ultimately gaining acceptance into the American culture. Another secondary source is Irish America by Reginald Byron. Economic and Social Research Council, 1997. This book details the discrimination that many Irish immigrants experienced in the 19 th century and how it changed over generations. Thesis Statement Based on my research to date, I will try to support the following thesis: Even though Irish Immigrants were treated as less than human by domestically born Americans, they were critical to the development of the United States that we know of today and their assimilation into society could not have been prevented.
