In June 1919 Éamon de Valera, leader of Sinn Féin and President of Dáil Éireann travelled to the United States with the aim of securing funds and support for the new Dáil.

An excellent article by Dr David McCullagh published by Century Ireland explains some of the personal and professional aims of de Valera’s visit.

Another long read on the visit comes from the Dáil100 initiative.
