In Tony Horwitz's Confederates in the Attic: Dispatches from the
Unfinished Civil War (1998), on the first page (5) one finds "Isaac Moses
Perski fled Czarist Russia as a teenaged draft dodger--in Yiddish, a
shirker--and arrived in Manhattan without money or English or family."  No
citation is given for the Yiddish.
