Ghost Stories Of Historic Irish Philadelphia. Ghosts Stories of Historic Irish Philadelphia contains eight historic tales of some grand and some humble Irish in 19th Century Philadelphia in the throws of Industrial expansion. Two important historical events - the Duffy's Cut Murders and the Nativists Riots - act as the backdrop for these sometimes brutal tales of 19th Century Irish who came to Philadelphia seeking an escape from economic hardships in their native Ireland. Religious clashes that began in Ireland came with the new immigrants faced with hardships that they had not anticipated. The Irish men and women brought to life tell their tales of hardship that have made them ghosts that roam their old haunts in Kensington and outlaying rural lands being fitted out with new railroads.
