Attachments: Faces and Stories from America's Gates
by Bruce I. Bustard
Publisher's Description
Americans proudly proclaim the United States 'a nation of immigrants'. Millions who came to the US found freedom and opportunity, but America's immigrant story has always been made up of individuals whose histories differed according to who they were, where they came from, and where, when, and why they arrived. Attachments: Faces and Stories from America's Gates, based on a National Archives Experience exhibition of the same title, draws from the millions of immigration files in the U.S. National Archives to tell some of these unique tales.

A fascinating, thematic exploration of some of the millions of immigration files in the US National Archive, focusing on 29 case studies, it explores beyond the literal by looking at the “attachments” of immigrants to family and community. Included are many previously unpublished photographs and other documents from the US National Archives
