This introductory chapter offers a deep glimpse into the development of Irish nationalism in Irish-American communities from the end of the eighteenth century to the beginning of the twentieth century. Using a passage from Wolfe Tone as an opening, the section charts how exiled Irish nationalists from the United Irishmen to the Young Irelanders and Fenians provided a strong voice for Irish-American communities and contributed to the growth of Irish nationalism in the United States. The chapter creates a foundation for the narrative and provides important details into the dynamics of Irish-American nationalism from which the US-based militant republican movement in the 1920s evolved from.

Keywords:   Wolfe Tone, Fenians, United Irishmen, Irish-American, US-based, militant republican movement, voice, communities, Irish nationalism
