For more than two centuries and for almost two million people, Baltimore was the destination that promised hope and opportunity--a new life. For this talk, historian Jack Burkert will discuss the realities of immigrating to America. Beginning in the 18th century, and accelerating through the 19th century, immigrants provided the labor force necessary for Baltimore to become an industrial powerhouse. Throughout the 20th century, new arrivals from other parts of America continued to fuel Baltimore’s growth. Who were these people? Where were they from? Why did they leave home? We hope you’ll join us to explore these questions and more at this lecture!
