|Summary, etc.:|| During the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century, millions of British immigrants left their home to come to the United States. Leaving behind famine, poverty, and an overcrowded homeland, they came seeking opportunities in a new land. Readers will be transported back in time to the hardships British immigrants faced and the successes they had, which ultimately helped in building the United States young industries. Push/pull factors for immigration are identified throughout the text, which supports key social studies concepts. Readers will be fascinated by the historical photographs and primary sources included in this volume, which transport them back in time to this important era of history.
