how the United States' population received and/or treated the group?
Influence on their homeland?
Some of these early Russians were circular immigrants—they planned to stay only long enough to save some money and then to return home to Russia. Many of those who did return, however, found their homeland in the midst of the greatest turmoil in its history.
Many resettled in southern Alaska, California, and parts of Oregon.
Many Russian immigrants found themselves working in sweatshops cutting and sewing fabric to make clothing.
Impact on the U.S.
Russian Immigrants have impacted such things as music, performing arts and food.
