The United States has long been known as a nation of immigrants, and indeed, more immigrants have come to this country than to any other. This was especially true from 1901 to 1910, when nearly nine million    people came to the United States with the common hope of starting new and better lives. Most of these newcomers entered the country through Ellis Island, which was the main reception center for immigrants of the era.
 
During the period of “new immigration,” which began in the 1890s, people came from Italy, Russia, Poland, Yugoslavia, Germany, and Greece. These immigrants longed to leave behind the poverty and overpopulation of southern and eastern Europe. Willing to work hard and eager to learn, they became some of the most productive Americans of the twentieth century.
 
Ellis Island, open as an immigration station from 1892 until 1954, has been restored and is now the site of a museum celebrating the immigrant experience. An estimated forty percent of all Americans have ancestors who first came to our country through this island’s facilities. Although immigration laws and patterns have changed, the United States continues to lead other nations in the numbers we receive, remaining still, truly a nation of immigrants.
