Great documentary
2 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a touching documentary from beginning to end. I t whole heartedly captures the struggles of our fore fathers. This is of extreme importance to any American of Irish decent or any one interested in the history of American immigration.

There were many touching moments in all the different parts of this saga. The most touching would probably be when they were talking about the tragedy of the potato famine. It was also impressive to know what kind of persecution and degradation they had to go through while trying to make a life for themselves in a newly formed America.

This movie proves to all of us the importance of diversity and determination that eventually make this country one of the greatest countries for humanity and opportunity
