Just released "The Cut" DVD now available at: http://irishamericanfilms.com/shop/ http://irishamericanfilms.com/shop/

"The Cut: The Journey of the Men and Women of Duffy's Cut," produced by Joe Magee, Roger Bruce and Art Swanlund of Irish American Films and directed by Shawn Swords (Wages of Spin I and II, Charlie Gracie "Fabulous" National PBS) with William Watson, Ph.D., professor of History at Immaculata University, serving as historical consultant in addition to his role as director of the Duffy's Cut Project.

"The Cut" The Journey of the Men and Women of Duffy's Cut," is a feature length documentary film about the 57 Irish railroad workers who arrived in Philadelphia to build mile 59 of the Philadelphia and Columbia Railroad, and died within six to eight weeks of violence and cholera. The Irishmen were from Donegal, Tyrone and Derry in Ulster, with an average age of 22. A project, headed by Dr. Watson and his brother Rev. Frank Watson, has been underway since 2002 to locate the graves of these workers and properly rebury them. To date, the graves of seven workers have been excavated. Work is ongoing to recover the remaining fifty bodies.

“This documentary is the newest and most extensive coverage of the Duffy's Cut story and it places the events at Duffy's Cut in the context of other 1832-era deaths of Irish immigrant laborers elsewhere in Chester County," stated Dr. Watson. The film discusses the possibility of the site being the location of the worst mass murder in Pennsylvania history.”

Family Picnic

Our Family Picnic is moving back to the Legion this year and will be held on August 6th from 1 pm to 5 pm or so. Be on the lookout for a “things we need” sign-up sheet from Pat O’Brien. As always the division will supply some food and the sign up request for desserts, snacks etc. will go out. We will have a DJ and most likely a guitar player or two. The whole family is welcome!
