Lesson Plan: Immigration, Nativism, and the Effect on the Irish in a Burgeoning United States of America

The purpose of the lesson is to offer the students an opportunity to look at an example of nativism against the Irish and the tragic consequences that occurred along with the exploitation of the Irish in the building of the nation when men were expendable and there was little or no accounting for that type of behavior.
