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.
