Not so sneaky

Not so sneaky | History project | Scoop.it
Regan Elliott's insight:
The Zimmerman note was a telegram to Von Eckhardt from Zimmerman offering U.S. territory to Mexico in return for joining the Germans. It helped the U.S. get into the war because they don't want their land given up so easily. So they fought for it. And won.

The old dirty tenements.

The old dirty tenements. | History project | Scoop.it
Regan Elliott's insight:
The way immigrants and some people used to live back in the day was not that great.There were many negative factors about the living conditions in the city life. The tenement houses were very rundown apartment buildings. Eight people lived in a tiny room. If someone was sick there was a high chance you could get sick. They were very filthy. There was one bathroom in each room. There wasn't any natural light. The poor immigrants couldn't do anything about it.

Regan Elliott's insight:
Immigrants that came to america had to go through Ellis island. The steerage and all immigrants but first class had to go through this dreadful process. They had tests to make sure they weren't sick.
