A small amount of Polish people came to the United States before the American Civil War, but most came afterwards (Pula, 1995, p. 1). They immigrated to America due to the occupation of foreign powers that sought after the destruction of the Polish language, tradition and culture (Pula, 1995, p. 1). The Polish was perceived as appalling due to the language and customs that they followed while living in the societies of Prussia, Russia and Austria which caused them to move to the United States. Moreover, the Polish people living in Poland along the Prussia line suffered from the same treatment along with confiscation of the properties that they owned (Lucille, 1951, p. 87). Also, once the Polish peasants were no longer enslaved under the higher classes, they knew it was beneficial to follow the capitalist economic changes.
to recover from this depression. The unprecedented occurrences which happened in the late 1920’s and 1930’s caused much to change in America: socially, financially, and politically. Many laws and regulations were passed to prevent something similar from happening in the future, such as the Agricultural Adjustment Organization, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the National Recovery Administration (Timeline). People who lived during the Great Depression often suffered because of it for the rest of their lives. People were forced to be stingy to survive, and after the depression was over they squandered their money on luxuries and necessities alike.
The Fugitive Slave act of 1850 forced Northerners to support the institution through returning runaway slaves, creating anger and resistance in the North and additional tension. In response, Southerners threatened to succeed from the union due to their view that this infringed on their individual rights and damaged the backbone of their livelihood. Additionally, the regional economies impacted views on westward expansion and whether new territories or states should permit the institution, such as California This resulted in a major increase in the stress between the regions due to each region wanting equal representation. Although members of the government attempted to compromise to even out the number of slave and non slave states, such as the Compromise of 1850, there were countless times that the two regions struggled over the laws of slavery and the territories that it should be permitted, further increasing the ideological and political divide and leading to the secession of the Southern states.
The German Immigrants were a part of the old immigration group that first came to America before the civil war and were most popular in the 1850’s-1980’s.

The German’s have contributed many things to America, which include ideas for the weekend, christmas tree, Santa Clause, and the Easter Bunny.
The Revolution was caused primarily by the political and economic issues. The colonist classes were tired of interference of British Empire in the policies of economic and trading through acts created by Parliament. Also, the Revolution took place because of geography, mercantilism, colonist’s rights being denied, and the French-Indian war.
People in the North believed that slavery was inherently evil and inhumane, but the South disagreed, believing that slaves were property and leaving all possible work on the plantations, up to them. This then led to the great Abolitionists Movement as many people started to view slavery as evil thanks to people such as Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and Harriet Beecher Stowe. The next cause of the war was the new expansion throughout the U.S. This caused new states to have to choose between the Union and Confederacy, which only caused for hate and strive between the two.

Second, there were many religious disputes and reformations during that period, which caused many conflicts between the protestants and the Catholics. Finally, because of the severe religious conflicts in England, it affected its economy.

This meant Thomas Moore had a critical view on The United States. This view angered many Americans because Moore was criticising the way the country was run at the time; even though the Americans were in the wrong. A theory as to why Thomas Moore was passionate about the goings on in America was because he had “... would have been exposed to both the political and interpersonal variations during the 1790s and 1800s - a period which saw two revolutionary actions (1798, 1803) as well as an Act of political Union (1801)” this would create a personal connection to any type of slavery or rebellion (Smyth 23). A few years after traveling to North America, Moore wrote “The Last Rose of Summer.” This song has a beautiful melody, and when it is sung it sounds like an angel. The meaning behind this beautiful tone is a complex one.

Asians immigrating to North America have done so since the colonists, but their immigration has not prospered until the late 1870s. Specific groups, like the Chinese and Japanese, were targeted for discrimination and other atrocious acts. White Americans had a stereotypical way of thinking about immigrants from Asia, and how they were going to impose menace and the outsourcing of jobs. They also became physical and labor threats for the nativists, and subsequently these nativists did everything in their power to enforce regulations that could potentially weaken Asian groups. Therefore laws such as the Chinese Exclusion Act were created solely based on race and color.
