Event Description

Immigration in the 18th and 19th Century saw millions of Europeans travel to America in order to settle what is now the United States of America. This time is also marked by forced immigration in the form of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. The vastly different experiences of the two flows of immigration still resonates today. Join the USCHS on May 13th for a discussion with Dr. Alan Kraut, University Professor of History at American University and a non-resident fellow of the Migration Policy Institute, on immigration in the 18th and 19th Centuries.
