Former Secretary Webb talked about his book Born Fighting: How the Scots-Irish Shaped America, published by Broadway. He traced the immigration of the Scots-Irish, an ethnic group defined from conflict from their earliest clans battling against England and their role in the settling of England’s Ulster Plantation in Northern Ireland during the 1700's. During the 18th century between 250,000 and 400,000 Scots-Irish traveled to America. Descendents of the rugged cultural group became famous American explorers and military leaders including: Daniel Boone, Lewis and Clarke, Davy Crockett, Stonewall Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant, George S. Patton, Teddy Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan. close
