Nextext Historical Readers Student Text The Irish Americans

During the 19th Century, when the Irish came by the hundreds of thousands, they were the original "huddled masses". Forced into exile, an overwhelmingly rural people became the "wretched refuse" of America's first urban slums. From the very bottom of society, Irish men dug their way upward, building our sewers, canals, roads and bridges, while Irish women climbed up from being laundresses, servants, and maids to become mill and office workers.
