In spite of the many historical studies of Irish Protestant migration to America in the eighteenth century there is a noted lack of study in the transat- lantic migration of Irish Protestants in the nine- teenth century. The main hindrance in rectifying this gap has been nding a method with which to approach a very difcult historiographical problem. The Invis- ible Irish endeavours to ll this blank spot in the historical record. Rankin Sherling imaginatively uses the various bits of available data to sketch the rst outline of the shape of Irish Presbyterian migration to America in the nineteenth century. Using the migration of Irish Presbyterian ministers as tracers of a larger migration Sherling demon- strates that eighteenth-century migration of Protes- tants reveals much about the completely unknown nineteenth-century migration. An original and creative blueprint of Irish Presbyterian migration in the nineteenth century The Invisible Irish calls into question many of the assumptions that the history of Irish migration to America is built upon. Rankin Sherling is assistant professor of history at Marion Military Institute. 2 7 M Q U P F A L L 2 0 1 5 A M E R I C A N H I S T O R Y I R I S H H I S T O R Y The Invisible Irish Finding Protestants in the Nineteenth-Century Migrations to America rankin sherling An exploration of the enduring historical puzzle of the nature and scope of Irish Protestant migration to North America.
