America 18/70

Swedish Immigration to the USA

The detailed saga of the journey and life stories of nineteenth century Swedes is wonderfully depicted in the novels of Vilhelm Moberg. The second volume, Unto A Good Land places the immigrants on American soil and specifically at Castle Garden, the immigrant processing centre used before Ellis Island was built.
