America The Promised Land
Their troubles did not end there. They had to face the rest of the American population that was not very welcoming to immigrants. They had to live in a certain area of town called tenaments that were an infestion and infection breeding groud with poor living conditions and no processes to clean waste products. Immigrants were willing to work for less money and longer hours stealing American citizen jobs that added to the hatred some Americans had for them.
Although not all were against them, the social gospel belief held the idea that religious faith should be expressed through good works and that churches have the moral duty to help solve society's problems. They aided them in starting the Settlement House Movement that provided immigrant services, english classes, job-training courses and social activities or gatherings.
All immigrants had to face very difficult times; leaving everything they have ever known to being seperated from family was a real challenge. But some were able to pull through all the trials and tribulations and come out stronger than before, succeding and making a name for themselves, finding success, not succumbing to the competition or the pressures of life.

1903 the Wright Brothers tested their airplane and made the first successful powered flight by man at Kitty Hawk. The planes wing span was of 40.3 feet, the engine had a total of 12 horsepower, and did not have an advanced way to turn right or left. Their father partially disagreed with his sons and he once said, “It is impossible for men in the future to fly like birds. Flying is reserved for the angels. Do not mention that again lest you be guilty of blasphemy.” But the Wright Brother did it, and the Wright Memorial at Kitty Hawks now commemorates their achievement.
