Teaching The rush of immigrants

The rush of immigrants

Between 1880 and 1930, over 27 million people entered the United States. Most of these people passed through Ellis Island, the famous island that holds the Statue of Liberty. The Irish and Germans came, but so did other groups. Many came from Southern and Eastern Europe. Some came from as far away as Asia. With these new immigrants came new complexions, new languages, and new religions. The face of America was getting more diverse every day.
