Catholic Immigrants from Ireland #northcarolinapioneers

Catholic Immigrants from Ireland

Burke County North CarolinaDuring the great potato famine of the 1840s, Catholics came to America in droves seeking refuge among their own kind. They were destitute and starving, and mostly spoke with the Irish dialect. This was the beginning of the ethnic ghettos in cities along the north eastern seaboard.
