Until about 15 years ago the complex history of the links between the north of ireland and colonial america was something of a brackish backwater in 18th century atlantic studies admittedly the internal history of ulster presbyterianism had already come alive thanks to the work of david hayton on . In fact these scots irish from ulster and lowland scotland comprised the most numerous group of immigrants from great britain and ireland to the american colonies in the years prior the american revolution with an estimated 150000 leaving northern ireland at the time. The ulster diaspora 1680 1750 estimates for the period 1680 1750 give a figure of 70000 for ulster american emigration in relation to transatlantic emigration the calculation is more complicated firstly because there are other published estimates and secondly because there is a good deal of disparity between these estimates. This collection of essays examines the contribution made by the ulster scots diaspora upon the writing of north america the book interprets writing in a broad sense and charts the impact of this diaspora upon literary historical political religious and personal discourses
