Ernest Caillat in Copenhagen

The boot-shaped Caillat monument was designed by the French Art Nouveau architect Hector Guimard (1867-1942). Guimard also designed entrances to various Paris metro stations and a number of buildings. The Chatelet Metro is one of the best-preserved examples of his metro station work. Guimard was one of the early proponents of the Art Nouveau style, but when Art Nouveau waned he was largely forgotten. However, when Art Nouveau was rediscovered in the 1960s, Guimard was hailed as one of the leading architects if not the leading architect of a style that Le Corbusier termed the magnificent gesture. Alas, most of Guimard’s Art Nouveau buildings have been torn down and those that have survived are not accessible to the public, which makes this magnificent example in Pere-Lachaise even more important.

Scots-Irish Migration There were multiple waves of migration from Northern Ireland to Country. Copenhagen Map The high tides were in 17171718, 17251729, 17401741, 17541755, and 17711775. The reasons for the large migrations in the eighteenth century included high rents and religious persecution. Most came freely, but there were also indentured servants and deported prisoners. Others arrived with the British army and opted to settle instead of returning. Ministers naturally took the lead in some migrations, collecting their flock from one or more Irish towns or parishes and bringing all to the colonies to cluster together in the new settlement. The Scots-Irish presence in the colonies began in the seventeenth century, but the first major migration was the group led by Reverend James McGregor in 1718 from County Londonderry to Boston. This group founded Londonderry, New Hampshire. Most Scots-Irish, however, settled in waves from Pennsylvania through Virginia and the Carolinas. Even so, there was a Scots-Irish presence in all thirteen colonies.
