Featuring Babe Ruth
Babe Ruth was born February 6, 1895 in Baltimore, Maryland. As a young child, Babe Ruth was one of eight born to the family. However, only two of them survived, him and his brother. Babe Ruth's parents, Kate Schamberger and George Herman Ruth Sr., also owned a tavern. Because Babe Ruth was too much for his parents to handle, they sent him to St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys, which was a Catholic orphanage and reformatory that became Babe Ruth's home for the next 12 years.
Capturing Louis Armstrong
After dropping out of school, Louis joined a quartet of boys who sang in the streets for money. After he got older however, Louis went to play in the brass bands and river boats of New Orleans and later began to travel with the well-regarded band of Fate Marable. After Louis got some recognition, he was invited by his mentor to join the Creole Jazz Band.
Coming into the new life full of horror
When immigrants arrived, they ended up getting really low-paying, unskilled jobs which led to them getting poor housing in overcrowded slums. Since they ended up doing this, it eventually made urban communities. There was a large variety of ethnicity in these communities and benevolent societies. Many aid organizations were arranged to help poor and un-healthy immigrants.
As a result of heavy immigration, the nativists respond by creating the Chinese Exclusion Act which limited the amount of Chinese immigrants that enter the United States. It also denied Chinese citizenship. The nativists also made another act called the Gentleman's Agreement which limited Japanese immigration to the United States. Also, Japan prevented unskilled worker immigration.
When immigrants would come to the United States, they would have a series of tests. One such test is the Literacy Test which was a test to see your level of English reading Ability.
