  1. More people meant more mouths too feed and needed faster productivity, aka they started building things more often and began major companies, DONT quote me on that because im not a genious, just look up how the economy changed when immigrants came in the 1820s,

  2. The immigrants who came to the United States of America between the years 1820 and 1860 changed the character of the country because they brought with them their own culture and values. This started mixing with the already present culture and values and gave birth to a new character to the country. Among the immigrants were several Irish and German people.

  3. The correct answer is A.

    Between 1880 and 1920, a time of rapid industrialization and urbanization, America received more than 20 million immigrants. The majority of the arrivals were from southern and Eastern Europe, mostly Italian and Jews fleeing the religious prosecution in Eastern Europe ( Russia, Romania, Hungary ).

    The Italians arriving in the States were escaping poverty  in their own country. They were peasants from south Italy, farmers and laborers, most of them were single men. They spoke little to no English and the religion they practiced was Catholicism.

    The Jews arrivals were more women than men and they were mostly previous city dwellers. Their level of education was high and many of them spoke good or basic English. Their religion was Judaism but they were extremely tolerant of other religious beliefs.
