On Saturday, August 17, the Battle of Homestead Foundation presents a book talk on “Pittsburgh’s ‘Other’ Irish: Before the Robber Barons Pump House.

The phrase “Scotch-Irish Presbyterian” might seem synonymous with self-righteous robber barons. But take a further look back to a Western PA of farms and artisans’ workshops, when Pittsburgh’s Irish were mostly Presbyterians whose religious beliefs discouraged them from the pursuit of wealth for its own sake. Dr. Peter Gilmore will discuss his recent books Irish Presbyterians and the Shaping of Western Pennsylvania 1770–1830 and Exiles of ’98: Ulster Presbyterians in the US.  The discussion will begin at 1:30 pm at the Historic Pump House, 880 E. Waterfront Dr., Munhall, PA 15210. Free admission. For more information, visit the website https://battleofhomestead.org/

A dinner will be held at 5:00 pm.
