Ellis Island: Gateway to Freedom

Did you know that almost 40% of the US population can trace their ancestry to immigrants who first arrived in America at Ellis Island?

Invictus Prep visited this beautiful historic site in Upper New York Bay to explore the Ellis Island Immigration Museum and walk through the Great Hall, where immigrants were processed from 1892 to 1954. We have been studying immigration and enjoyed this immersive experience!

"Everywhere immigrants have enriched and strengthened the fabric of American life." - John F. Kennedy
