Speaker: Nick Fessenden
It is a little known fact that during the Great Wave of Immigration from 1830 to 1914, 1.5 million immigrants landed in Baltimore, America’s third largest port of entry.
Nicholas will describe the stories of the major groups who came to Baltimore, Germans, Irish, and Jews, as well as Poles, Lithuanians, Czechs, and Italians.
He will discuss why the immigrants left their homelands, how they crossed the Ocean, and how they fashioned new lives in their adopted country.
