FC: Immigrants and Ellis Island | By: Haley Holme

1: On the RMS Titanic most 3rd class passengers were immigrants, hoping to start a new life in America. They had sold everything they owned (and kept a few possessions) to pay for their boarding ticket. Some went for medical related reasons, to start a new business, and to seek fortunes. 3rd class passengers couldn't use the swimming pool, were segregated from 1st and 2nd class, were treated like cattle, they could attend church services, and mainly could just roam the decks.

2: 3rd class passengers did not get the same luxurious foods as 2nd and 1st class passengers, however they did have many choices, Though they did not have as many as 2nd and 1st class. When the Titanic was sinking, 3rd class was kept in the 3rd class area until all 1st and 2nd class passengers were in life boats, therefore most 3rd class passengers went down with the ship. But those who survived entered America in a fairy boat through Ellis Island.

3: Not all immigrants entered America through Ellis Island, though over twelve million immigrants did enter the United States through the portal of Ellis Island, a small island in the New York Harbor. Ellis Island is located in the upper bay just off the New Jersey coast, within the shadow of the Statue of Liberty. Immigrants that arrived at Ellis Island weren't considered "immigrants" because all of their papers that said they were immigrants went down with the ship, however they were still treated differently.

4: Immigrants were required to pass a series of medical and legal inspections before they could enter America. | Ellis Island
