1880 – 1930
Because of the 1880’s, vapor energy had reduced your way to America significantly. Immigrants poured in from about the global globe: through the center East, the Mediterranean, Southern and Eastern Europe, and down from Canada.
The entranceway ended up being wide open for Europeans. Within the 1880s alone, 9% for the population that is total of emigrated to America. After 1892, almost all immigrants arrived in through the newly exposed Ellis Island.
One immigrant recalled coming to Ellis Island: “The motorboat anchored at mid-bay after which they tendered us from the ship to Ellis Island…We got from the boat…you got your bag in your hand and went directly into the building. Ah, that must have been about five to six thousand people day. August Jammed, I remember it was. Hot being a pistol, and I also’m using my long johns, and my hefty Irish tweed suit.”
