Overview

These lively and colorful books tell the stories of important places and monuments across the United States that have shaped American history and that symbolize American democracy and freedom.

In the late 19th and early 20th century, about 12 million people from Europe and elsewhere entered the United States through Ellis Island. They came to make a better life for themselves in a country of freedom and opportunity. Today, the museum at Ellis Island helps us understand the fears and hopes that immigrants shared as they came to a new land and honors their contributions to the American nation.
