Bundle Description
This is bundle of 2 power point presentations on the Impact of Immigration in the United States and the Statue of Liberty, a Symbol of American Freedom. The total number of slides is 37 and each one is editable, so you can modify those to meet your individual needs.

Power point presentation #1 is entitled Industrialization & Urbanization - Impact of Immigration and contains 14 slides.

Late 19th-century immigrants left their European homes to escape economic problems—scarce land, growing populations, and the decline of subsistence farming. They came to the United States in hope of economic gain. Most settled in the United States permanently, but others came only to amass some capital and then return home.

Record numbers of immigrants arrived in the United States, some 9 million from 1880 to 1900, and 13 million from 1900 to 1914. 1865 - 1885, immigrants arrived mainly from western Europe. The largest groups came from England, Ireland, Germany, and Scandinavia. 1885 - 1914, immigrants arrived mainly southern, eastern, and central Europe.

Many new immigrants were Slavs—Poles, Czechs, Russians, Ukrainians, Croatians—and others, including Jews, from the Austro-Hungarian and Russian empires. Among the new immigrants were also Greeks, Romanians, and Italians, mainly from southern Italy or Sicily.

Power point presentation #2 is entitled The Statue of Liberty - Symbol of American Freedom and contains 23 slides.

The Statue of Liberty stands in New York Harbor and for many years has greeted hundreds of thousands of people, especially immigrants who see the United States for the first time, yet it was not built by Americans, it was a gift of celebration. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from the French people commemorating the alliance of France and the United States during the American Revolutionary War. If not for the French involvement, it was doubtful the colonists could have completed the separation from Great Britain.

The Statue of Liberty is recognized as a symbol of American freedom for all who see her. Also known also as “Lady Liberty”, she has become one of the most famous icons in all the world. In her hand, lifted high above her head she holds a torch that symbolizes enlightenment. The Statue of Liberty's torch lights the way to freedom showing us the path to Liberty. Even the Statue's official name represents her most important symbol "Liberty, enlightening the World".

Raising the funds to build the statue was an enormous undertaking, especially in the United States because many did not see the need for it. Finally, through the efforts of Joseph Pulitzer enough money was raised through the American public to build the statue.
