Storyboard Text

  • This is Landon. He is 23 years old and he is from Ireland. He wants to come to the United States to escape famine, poverty and disease.
  • He had saved up enough money from selling all of his possessions, in order to come to America to find a new and better life.
  • Landon is now on his way to New York City. He is living in filthy conditions on the ship  for nearly 2 months.
  • Once Landon arrived at Ellis Island, he was medically examined, like all immigrants were. After the authority determined he was healthy, he was questioned.
  • Eventually, Landon was given an entry card to the United States and began to look for housing and work.
  • Landon found a small apartment and also found work as a laborer. It was hard for him to adjust to the urban lifestyle but he remained hopeful. After working very hard for little pay as a laborer, Landon was offered a better job at a factory. He continued to work his way up and make a better life for himself.
