The Scotch-Irish in America by Henry Ford Jones, first published by Princeton University in 1915, is a classic in its field. It traces the origins of the Scotch-Irish and examines the influence they had on the founding of the United States of America.

"This book tells the story of the Ulster Plantation and of the influences that formed the character of the people. The causes are traced that led to the great migration from Ulster and the Scotch-Irish settlements in America are described. The recital of their experiences involves an account of frontier manners and customs, and of collisions with the Indian tribes. The influence of the Scotch-Irish settlements upon American institutions is traced, particularly in organizing and propagating the Presbyterian Church, in spreading popular education, and in promoting the movement for American national independence. In conclusion, there is an appreciation of the Ulster contribution to American nationality." (from the Preface)
