Immigrants, Century, War
America is a land of immigrants, and the Ticino Swiss immigrants
share many of the characteristics found in other immigrant groups.
The first American immigrants were the English in the 17th century,
who founded the country. They were followed by the Scots-Irish from
Northern Ireland in the 18th century, and then in the half century after
America's Civil War, the years 1865 to 1920, masses of immigrants
came from all parts of Europe.
