Stories of the Irish in Nebraska by Thomas A. Kuhlman

Oct 19 2013 - 2:00pm
About this event
In Lincoln and Omaha, on farms and in small towns, Irish Nebraskans left their mark on business, politics, the church, agriculture and the arts. From the establishment of Father Trecy’s colony in Dakota County in 1856, the connection between Ireland and Nebraska has remained strong. Sometimes dramatic, sometimes hilarious, the stories of Nebraska’s Irish immigrants range from the storing of rifles in the cellar of Lincoln’s first millionaire for an invasion of Canada to the last minute rescue by a Nebraskan of Irish leader Parnell from hanging as a traitor in London.
