I believe that good communication is a key aspect of every relationship, professional or personal. But despite this hurdle, I’m glad I’ve been able to call Bridgeport my home. Even though I don’t plan on living here my entire life, I will never forget about the wonderful moments I have experienced here, and I will forevermore admire the unity and integrity the city reflects. The city of Bridgeport, and its people, will be a distinct memory that I will always
All of this led up to having most of my family and extended family moving to America. Which helped them get successful and gave them a better quality of life. My grand uncle wanted a really good education, and have a better quality of life in the states then that he would ever have in India. In 1961 at the age of 26, my grand uncle was the first person in my family to move to the United States then Boston to teach college.

In 1864 Congress approved the Northern Pacific Railway to be built. The NPR is the first transcontinental railroad in the northern part of the country. It is 8,316 miles long, beginning in Minnesota and ending in Washington state, with many branches going off the main line. When congress approved it they also supplied nearly 40million acres of land grants to build the railroad on.

In addition to railroads, Congress passed numerous acts and laws to encourage people to move west. One of the first acts was the Homestead Act of 1862. Which “gave 160 acres of land to anyone who would pay a $10 registration fee and pledge to live on it and cultivate it for five year” (Divine, Breen, Fredrickson, and Williams 502). Passing this law forged a “mass migration of land-hungry Europeans” (Divine, Breen, Fredrickson, and Williams 502), amazed that a country would relinquish millions of acres for free. Between 1862 and 1900, close to 600,000 families made their way west from free homesteads.
Fighting for the American Dream “When I asked my dad why he brought us here, he always answered, ‘for a better opportunity of course!’” (Miglani 1) For years, the United States of America was looked at by foreigners as a land of promise and opportunity like this quote from Bob Miglani article called “Is the American Dream Still Alive”. The opportunities seemed endless in America for those overseas. They would leave their homes and loved ones to travel across the world to become an immigrant in America to begin their own American Dream. Although America was not always what it seemed like it would be, hundreds of immigrants were able to make something of themselves and make those around them proud through this idea of an American Dream. Therefore, through the terror and triumphs in the world, the American Dream is achievable because of the desire to make something of one’s self can push them forward, which shows how dreams can come true.
The food never disappoints from breakfast until dinner. Every morning we got breakfast coupons that we could us on our food. I always got the country platter which was filled with eggs, toast, biscuits and French toast. It was so good that it is what I got every morning while I was there. For lunch we just kind of found a little restaurant in the theme park we were in that day the food was always very good and yummy.

Many people looked at the land to the West, what we call today Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan, as possible land for settlement. But the Americans were also thinking about moving into this land. If the BNA colonies unite, then they could claim this land as their own before the Americans arrive. To conclude, the years leading up to and including 1867 was a historic time for our great nation. Not only did we become a country and celebrate annually on July 1st, but brought colonies together for a common goal by eliminating Political Deadlock during the Great Coalition.
Mr. Blackshaw had discovered Blackstone Lake and liked it. Just before the WWII he purchased a small peninsula from the Armstrong farm with a good view of the lake. There also was the road passing just 300 m to the north if he could get road allowance permission — and that would grow into an enduring issue to many of the ensuing owners. At the time of purchase Orville was a retail salesman on his way to being an assistant manager in Toronto. He was born in Leith beside Owen Sound, where his great-grandfather, Samuel, had landed from England in 1838.
