Millions of immigrants entered America's 'golden door' from 1880 to the turn of the century. This authentically reproduced Handbook of the United States was one of their most trusted resources on the road to citizenship and is filled with fascinating facts, statistics and information that helped immigrants make decisions about where to live, how to earn a living and how to become American citizens.

The Handbook of the United States, published in 1880, is a comprehensive guide that helped thousands of immigrants Ð Irish, Italian, Jewishand many others Ð succeed in a new and unfamiliar country. Today it provides new insights into the extraordinary circumstances of the immigrant experience and the new arrivals' remarkable contribution to making America a great global power.
