His works relating to the Irish in America include a collection of documents about Irish involvement in the American Revolution, the Irish connections of John F. Kennedy, a history of the Hibernian Society of Charleston and, forthcoming, along with coeditor David Doyle, a collection of articles about Irish involvement in American wars.
