“Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants…” ― Franklin D. Roosevelt


Blogging From A to Z Challenge

“B” is for baggage, as in the kind we use to travel.

Pictured above are photos of the suitcases, trunks and containers that the immigrants brought on their ocean voyages to America. Entering the country through Ellis Island in New York Harbor, some 12 million people passed through this historic building between 1892 and 1954.

If you enjoy history and traveling, put Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty on your destinations wish list. It’s truly amazing to see the displays, like the Ellis Island Baggage Room, and Miss Liberty. They’re a powerful reminder that seeking a new & better life is often a tough journey, but well worth the trip.  

NOTE: If you want to tour Lady Liberty, you must schedule a reservation in advance of your trip. Plan your visit  or simply learn more by clicking the link.
