VENOM AND LAUGHTER by Julia Cooley Altrocchi and Paul Hemenway Altrocchi
A Colleen Copes With Anti-Irish Prejudice

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


"The mid-1800s were years of unrest, foment, and violent ethnic and racial prejudice. Outwardly peaceful Connecticut towns were no exception.

Irish immigrants were castigated as a lowly race. They faced hateful venom with courage and laughter, becoming significant contributors to American culture.

The authors vividly describe this little known facet of our country’s history, which included torture and murder."
