by The Scotch-Irish Society of America
The Scotch-Irish Society of America was founded in 1889 and published the proceedings of its annual conference for the first ten years. The first conference of the society was held in Columbia, Tennessee, in May 1889. The society was originally founded to promote and preserve Scotch-Irish heritage and history. This was reflected in the addresses at this congress in Lexington, Virginia. The congress was held at the Scotch-Irish founded Washington and Lee University. Topics discussed included The Scotch-Irish of the Valley of Virginia, the history of the Washington and Lee University, Scotch-Irish involvement in the American Revolution, as well as listings and some biographical details of the members of the various organisations and committees throughout the US. This series will prove very beneficial to anyone interested in Scotch-Irish ancestry.
