The Irish Famine and America's First Humanitarian Mission

About this Event

Stephen Puleo’s well-researched book tells the incredible story of the Irish potato famine, the USS Jamestown voyage, its captain Robert Bennet Forbes, the Irish priest who ministered to the starving in Cork city and the commitment of thousands of ordinary Americans who offered relief to Ireland during the famine. This remarkable story provided the blueprint for future relief efforts.
