The Scotch - Irish in East Tennessee.
The Scotch - Irish in East Tennessee.. The author, Judge Oliver P. Temple, reviews the origins of the Scotch Irish settlers in East Tennessee from their expulsion from the lowlands of Scotland and from Ireland by religious and civil persecution through their initial settlement in the Pennsylvania and later in Virginia and the Carolinas until they were forced, by more persecution to another retreat to their final settlement in Tennessee. He also reviews the significant part played by this group in the separation of the USA from Britain. An interesting and informative history of this gallant band of Scotch-Irish.
