Title: 1907 - Mass Immigration to America


About: In the first decade of the 20th Century, an average of one million immigrants per year arrived in the United States. Immigration officials reviewed about 5,000 immigrants per day during peak times at Ellis Island. Two-thirds of those individuals came from eastern, southern and central Europe.  Mass immigration would transform American society and culture, while forging the idea of a nation united in diversity. Today, over 100 million Americans—about one-third to forty percent of the population of the US —can trace their ancestry to the immigrants who first arrived in America at Ellis Island before dispersing to points all over the country.
