Born Fighting How the Scots Irish Shaped America Read & Download ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook In his first work of nonfiction bestselling novelist James Webb tells the epic story of the Scots Irish a people whose lives and worldview were dictated by resistance conflict and struggle and who in turn profoundly influenced the social political and cultural landscape of America from its beginnings through the present dayMore 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 Between 250000 and 400000 Scots Irish migrated to America in the eighteenth century traveling in groups of families and bringing with them not only long experience as rebels and outcasts but also unparalleled skills as frontiersmen and guerrilla fighters Their cultural identity reflected acute individualism dislike of aristocracy and a military tradition and over time the Scots Irish defined the attitudes and values of the military of working class America and even of the peculiarly populist form of American dem. This book was interesting in parts and reasonably well written It s really a book in two parts one about the history of the Scots Irish beginning in Scotland the Plantation in Ireland through the English civil wars and emigration the second about the Scots Irish in America The first part is revelatory since most histories of Ireland relegate the Ulster Scots to a minor role A history from their perspective is enlightening The second part the Scots Irish experience in America has both good and bad points I had not been familiar with the role of the Scots Irish in the Revolutionary War one that may have turned the tide in Cornwallis march through Georgia In the melting pot that was America most Scots Irish relinuished their identities as a distinct ethnicity and became simply Americans at that point But Webb is right that much of Scottish Celtic tribalism continued to mold the nature of particularly Appalachian Americans individualists even to their own detriment uick to take offense hold grudges and pick a fight dourly Calvinistic and hedonistic at the same time and in eual measureHis incorrect analysis of the American civil war has been made before that the fighting spirit of the Celts kept the Confederacy in the war much longer than it should have My own Scots Irish ancestors however fought eually hard for the Union and the area of Tennessee that my mother grew up in refused to secede The Catholic Irish Celts when drafted made a potent force on the other side However his idea that poor Southerners were merely defending their homes and did not support slavery is not just wrong but ludicrous They may have been misled by the landed gentry that was their leadership into a war not in their best interests but a hatred of blacks even if they didn t know them was ingrained in these people His analysis of Reconstruction is eually misleading Yes the North was responsible for some Southern misery and poor whites were not much better off economically than blacks but they loved being able to use the white only drinking fountains No doubt they were deceived again by wealthy white elites Still not only complicit in the treatment of freed blacks if anything they were despicable as William Walker s Lanterns on the Levee makes clear The problem with Reconstruction is that it ended too soon and never did mold the minds of poor Southerners Webb takes pride in this attributeEually appalling is his rather sad analysis of Vietnam War this book does indeed become an all encompassing vehicle for spouting his conservative philosophy affirmative action though I agree that Appalachia received undeservedly short shrift in the program the Confederate battle flag as a symbol of racism and the anti war movement Sometimes his discussion of his relationship with his father is poignant and insightful Sometimes it is bathetic So all in all the book is a mixed bag Thankfully I picked it up for a uarter
