From 1892 to 1954, over twelve million immigrants entered the United States and Lady Liberty would welcome these immigrants traveling to the US for the first time. The Statue of Liberty is more than a monument.It is a symbol of freedom for those who were leaving their homeland in search of a new life.
The United States is often referred to as a melting pot of people from a wide variety of backgrounds. It is an assimilation of cultures, ethnic origins, religions, ideas and traditions. This concept relies on the idea that everyone who lives in the United States becomes a part of a larger culture that is uniquely American.
