Appalachian Experience: The Scots-Irish in Appalachia (online)
November 8 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm
While many in our region claim Scots-Irish heritage and generally acknowledge the role the Scots Irish played in the settlement and cultural development of the Southern Appalachian region, this presentation will provide a deeper understanding of who the Scots Irish were, where they came from, why they came, how they got here, and how they left their mark on our region.
All registrants will receive a zoom link to the event.
