Land Of Liberty

  1. 1. Land of Liberty?
  2. 2. The men, women and children in these photographs are immigrants to the United States of America – the ‘New World’. They have just arrived by ship in New York to start new lives as American citizens. Over the years, millions like them have already settled in the New World, and millions more will follow them.
  3. 10. What has brought these people to America? What is the attraction of a country they have never seen before, and where they have no friends, no home and no work?
  4. 27. "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free... The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me; I lift my lamp beside the golden door"
