The Ellis Island Collection

£12.99

Product description

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, millions of immigrants came to America from the furthest corners of the globe, fleeing poverty and oppression in their native lands and searching for a better life. For most of these immigrants, the gateway to their new lives was a small island in the Hudson River: Ellis Island. Here, new arrivals were put through rigorous inspections, including a battery of tests, before they could be admitted to the United States. This "museum in a box" contains 25 meticulously reproduced replicas of genuine artifacts found at Ellis Island between 1892 and 1924 - its peak immigration years. Inside you'll find: An immigrant's boarding card Passenger list A U.S. citizenship manual distributed to immigrants Ellis Island lunch menu Declaration of Intention form Landing card A diary entry from an immigrant detained at Ellis Island Literacy test Photographic portraits of families on Ellis Island And much, much more! Hold pieces of history as you experience firsthand what it was like to be an immigrant at Ellis Island.
