    General Information
    Terrorism increased sharply after 1910 as the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920) caused confusion along the border. Texas authorities feared that Mexican Americans eligible for the draft were evdaing military service by heading south. Violence against Mexican Americans during this era in time usually went unchecked by local governements and law enforcements. Job discrimination closed the door of many opportunities.

    ...
    What cities did they settle in?
    The Irish settled mostly in the major cities on the east coast. Like cities in New York, New Jersey, and Maine. Since these cities were close to ports, they did not have to travel far from were they were let off the ship that brought them to America. They stayed in the communities which mostly were populated by their on culture.
    
    What was housing like?
    The Irish weren't able to live in expensive housing due to the cost of their trip to come to America; therefore, for the housing for the Irish was horrible, the apartments were small, and on average 9 people lived in 2 rooms. There was no indoor plumbing, so all sewage went outside, which led to rats. These rats carried disease which sometimes caused death in children.

    Irish Immigrants (1820s - 1850s)
    {Irish_Family.jpg} This is a picture of a nice Irish family coming over from Ireland to America.

    What were three reasons why the Irish left their homeland?
    The Irish were living in extremely difficult conditions in Ireland. Because of the Napoleonic Wars, they had a large overpopulation and soon were living in extreme poverty. Extreme religious persecution from the Irish Protestants and unfair political situations pushed the Irish closer and closer to leaving. Many Irish came to America at this time just for the freedom. In 1845, the great potato famine swept through the country. The Irish's main food source were potatoes and when the famine came through the country, many Irish people's food sources were completely wiped out, causing them to starve. Irish who wrote about the account said that the children looked sick, and that you could see every bone in their body. The crops remained undependable for 5 years afterwards. Many weren't able to pay their landlords and their only escape was emigrating to America.
