All of ye potatoes are making us sick :( The disease that they are giving us is called Blight! It is GROSS!
More than 4 million people sailed across the Atlantic to get to Ellis Island in the most unsanitary conditions. It was also very crowded.
When they arrived at Ellis Island, they all had to take a health test. If they passed, they were sent to the city on a ferry. If they failed, they were sent back to Ireland.
WE MADE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jane Addams created the Hull House. It provided Music, Art, and English lessons. It was also a warm place to make friends.
Nobody wanted anything to do with the Irish because even though they passed the health test, they still brought some sicknesses. They also made the city some much more crowded! This is what led to all the diseases and such.
There were many challenges faced by the Irish, as well as the city people. They didn't want to hire the Irish people beacuse they did not agree with their religions/ethnic groups.
