Coming to America: The Great Waves:

The history of immigration to America from the first Colonial wave through the second mid-1800s wave of frontier expansion, culminating with the third Great Wave that passed through Ellis Island Immigration Station in the late 19th and 20th centuries. These immigrants brought their culture and traditions and blended into the melting pot of America.
