If you remember my topic is immigration. This period was the big period for immigration, 21 million of them came to America . To narrow things down the inspections the government made for disease.I read this link about medical examinations at Ellis Island. This was practically the only requirement for immigration. They were checked for heart and lung problems. A special interest ringworm and trachoma, an eye infection. This was the most painful of the inspections. In my opinion I think this time period was not fair to the immigrants coming over because some stuff they checked for was already an issue here in America.

Civil war

My history teacher wants me to blog about our theme that regards to the Civil War and the Reconstruction period. While many people disregard immigration during the Civil War period, it was actually a very important part of the War and the Reconstruction period after.. So by the time of the war, the North was so much more populated because of immigrants that they were outnumbered the south by a lot. But almost none of them went to the south, because it was much harder to find hobby's with so much unpaid slave labor.Also the North was able to invent much more weaponry because they had a lot more people in factories while all the south's workers were working on plantations. I agree with this article because it makes sense that all the immigrants would not ant to go south because they would not have been able to fin jobs down there.

First Blog

I'm a high school junior and my teacher has asked us to blog about  a theme in american history. I have chosen to blog about Immigration because it's a huge topic in today's society

This article talks about the Syrian refugees and  the struggle they had to go through such a harsh time. I think that the humanitarian rights to discriminate the immigrant is not very fair or right because they've been through a lot.
