This is a multi-part presentation, which
includes a section for each of the nations from which the largest
numbers of people emigrated to the United States during the 19th
and early 20th centuries. A section on the Native
American is included, as well, to show what happened to the First
People as waves of immigrants arrived in this nation.
Within the pages of each immigrant group section you will find:
A timeline, located to the right of the browser display, which, when rolled over, reveals pertinent dates for the immigrants discussed in that section
A globe, located at the left side of the browser display, which, when clicked, leads to an interactive map of the United States showing the port(s) of entry and migration patterns of the immigrant group discussed in that section.
A watch face, located at the left side of the browser display, which, when clicked,
reveals pertinent dates for all the immigrant groups discussed in this presentation.
The pages of each immigrant section can be navigated from links at the bottom of the page. At the top of all pages are links to additional sections of this feature presentation and a link to go "home" (which takes you to the opening slide show). The site sections are:
