Immigration to Pennsylvania

Presented by Perry K. Blatz
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, immigrants of the many nationalities of southern and eastern Europe found economic opportunity in the mines and mills of Pennsylvania and the difficult and dangerous work that they offered. The numerous contrasts between their rural origins, the working conditions they faced, and the lives they built show the fundamental economic and social changes at the heart of the Industrial Revolution. Dr. Perry K. Blatz explains the compelling history.
