The present work on St. Patricks Day celebrations in American places will contribute something to that story.While recalling many of the most notable gatherings in honor of Irelands patron saint, and giving something of the spirit of the times in the toasts and sentiments that enlivened these occasions, it will be found to throw many interesting sidelights on the growth in numbers and standing of Irishmen and the descendants of Irishmen in the centres of American life and activity.The period it seeks to cover extends from the year 1737 to the year 1845 - more than a century.

The former date is chosen because it is that of the earliest record yet found of Irishmen meeting on American soil to honor St. Patrick. It closes with 1845, because thereafter began the greater Irish immigration - that of the famine years and years following - with so marked an increase in the volume of the westward floating Celtic tide, as in effect to make a new epoch. Shortly thereafter, too, came the Young Irelanders of 1848, a brilliant band giving new impulse to Irish sentiment.From few and rare in the middle of the eighteenth century the observances of St.

Patricks Day had become fixed institutions in most American cities and towns by the middle of the nineteenth century. From 1845 on to tne present day these festal functions have spread all over the United States with the march of the Irish race.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
