The Welsh of Tennessee

Eirug Davies  Other books by Eirug Davies

After Samuel Roberts's ill-fated attempt at forming a Welsh colony in Tennessee, others from Wales would help develop the state's fledgling iron and coal industry, This book tells how they became Knoxville's largest employer, started the Dixie Eisteddfod, and got involved in an armed insurrection over the use of convicts in the mines.

One David R Thomas would eventually donate a substantial collection of Welsh books published in America to Harvard University.

This is their remarkable story.
