The Good, The Bad, And In-Between
The Ups and Downs in our Time: 1880-1920
There's GOLD in Them There Hills! \(^o^)/ (June 18th, 1880)
This part of US history makes me proud because it helped us get to where we are today by raising small towns with the hopes of striking gold; those towns eventually were either deserted or grew into cities.
The Lady Liberty Dedication (October 28th, 1886) and Ellis Island Opening (December 31st, 1890
As well as the Statue of Liberty, four years later Ellis Island opened for business, allowing the start of America's Melting Pot, which is what it sounds like, and kinda not- it's the word for a mixture of races, cultures, and ethnics sharing their ideals and ways of life with each other, spreading the said ways to different people.
