Hello! I'm a new immigrant. I just came from Southern Europe.
The New Immigrant encounters the Old Immigrant and get to know each other.
Welcome to America! I'm from Northern Europe.
Mom! I'm so excited for this trip to America. I can't wait to see my older brother.
The immigrants are in search for economic opportunity, which wasn't offered in their homeland.
Me too son! Your brother says they offer great opportunity!
This is not what I expected.
LEAVE! You don't belong here!
The Nativists saw the immigrants as a threat to society.
People spent a lot of money on houses and cars. New businesses were made. This period was called the Gilded Age.
The Middle class were people like teachers, doctors, accountants, etc.
The working class lived in tenements. They often went to settlement houses which provided assistance to people in the area.Social Gospel movement believed religious faith should be expressed through good works.
