1/22 “New” Immigrants

Today we examined primary source political cartoons from the late 1800s to determine how welcome immigrants were to the US.  After gathering evidence, we wrote a mini-DBQ (at least 2 paragraphs and at least 2 pieces of evidence) answering the prompt “Were immigrants welcome in the US during the late 19th Century?”

This helps us to understand how immigration had an impact on social and cultural changes in America during the late 1800s (Key Concept 6.2).
