Teaching A Visit to Angel Island

A Visit to Angel Island

For the first half of the 1900s, Angel Island served as a place through which hundreds of thousands of people—soldiers and immigrants—were processed or detained. By 1946, however, the island was abandoned as an official processing site. And by December 1962, most of the island was turned over to the California state park system.
