In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the United States received the largest infusion of immigrants in its history. Many immigrants assimilated rapidly and adapted well to their unfamiliar home. Viewers learn that public schools were among the most important forces for Americanizing the new immigrants, providing a crash course in American values and habits. Movies, sports and newspapers also aided in teaching the country's lifestyle. However, for some who arrived at Ellis Island at this time, the cultural transition was not easy. Many immigrants worked long hours in dangerous jobs for little pay, and lived in poverty in urban slums. See how despite the hardships, their spirit and contributions helped transform the nation. Part of the multivolume United States History Origins to 2000 DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
