German and Irish Immigrants in Antebellum America

Students research how immigration changed the lives of Americans during 1850-1860. They study immigrant communities in rural America and research Irish and German-born residents of Augusta County, Virginia and Franklin County, Pennsylvania. They present their findings to the class and have a whole-class discussion.
