A Nation of Many Cultures

I just wanted to share this interactive immigration map. It is a great illustration of all of the different immigrants that have come into the United States since 1880. You can select a decade, a particular state, and/or a region of where the immigrants came from. It is a powerful visual tool that asserts that our nation's history is indeed complex and multicultural.
