The majority of asians who came to the U.S were Chinese, nearly half a million immigrated between 1850 and 1900. most worked as contract laborers on the railroads, then later moved to own shops or farm.
Among the farmers was a Manchurian man named Ah Bing. who left to work in America in the 1850's to send money home to his family
He worked at the Lewelling orchard in western Oregon. He supervised 30 other Chinese workers
I'm 6.2 feet tall, so I got the best job!
until 1882, when the Chinese exclusion act was passed, it prohibited Chinese immigration into the U.S for 10 years and Ah Bing was suck in China. But Ah Bing left and impact before he left, and you can still buy Ah Bing cherries today.
