Calvinists Incorporated by Anne Kelly Knowles
Book DescriptionAnne Kelly Knowles traces a community of Welsh immigrants to Jackson and Gallia counties in southern Ohio. After reconstructing the gradual process of community-building, the author focuses on the pivotal moment when the immigrants became involved with the industrialization of their new region as workers and investors in Welsh-owned charcoal iron companies. The text sets the southern Ohio Welsh in the context of Welsh immigration as a whole from 1795 to 1850 and explores how these strict Calvinists responded to the moral dilemmas posed by leaving their native land and experiencing economic success in the United States. A wide variety of sources, including obituaries and community histories are drawn upon to reconstruct the personal histories of over 1700 immigrants.

Mastering Iron, Hardback (March 2013)» View all books by Anne Kelly Knowles
Veins of iron run deep in the history of America. Yet it was Great Britain that became the Atlantic world's dominant low-cost, high-volume producer of iron. The author argues that the prolonged development of the American iron industry was largely due to geographical problems the British did not face.
