The First Thanksgiving



Immigrants first view of America


Statue of Liberty

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" a sonnet written by Emma Lazarus in 1883


Millions of immigrants arrived arrived at Ellis Island (pictured below)in New York harbor, which was the gateway to the United States. Ellis Island was an immigrant inspection station.

Among the tunes are songs of the early settlers, sailors, pioneers, sod shantymen, railway workers and immigrants just off the boat!


This is a Great Country!
