This is a list of notable Polish Americans, including both original immigrants who obtained citizenship and their American descendants. Leon M. Goldstein (died 1999), President of Kingsborough Community College, and acting Chancellor of the City University of New York. Joseph S. Murphy (1933–1998), President of Queens College, President of Bennington College, and Chancellor of the City University of New York. Nick Adams (1931–1968), film actor; mother was of Polish descent.
This book gives capsule histories of most groups of immigrants to the United States. See and discover other items: history of life, history of united states of america, opera history. It also provides a very useful theoretical understanding of the reasons for immigration. Though it is particularly useful in its examination of the pre-colonial and colonial periods, it also (unlike many texts) includes a significant history of the pan-Caribbean slave trade, and the impact on the country as a whole of twenty percent of the population (at one time) being Africans or the children of Africans.

Many immigrants and their descendants have contributed mightily to.Nor does it imply that Americans of immigrant descent are somehow lesser citizens
Many immigrants and their descendants have contributed mightily to America. Others have contributed to the crime statistics. Some tried America, then went home. Despite the evidence of American history, the NOI creed is entrenched, as is its corollary: the idea that the United States is a propositional nation with no ethnic basis, defined entirely by allegiance to the Declaration’s propositions. Nor does it imply that Americans of immigrant descent are somehow lesser citizens. American success is the work of settler and immigrant alike.
Polish Americans often display a flag similar to this with a crowned eagle at its center. Confusion over exact numbers of Polish immigrants again becomes a problem during this period, with large under reporting, especially during the 1890s when immigration was highest. The very name of Poland harkens back to its origins in the Slavic tribes that inhabited the Vistula valley as early as the second millennium . Migrations of these tribes resulted in three distinct subgroups: the West, East, and South Slavs. Most agree, however, that between mid-nineteenth century and World War I, some . million Poles immigrated to the United States.
Before the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln and other leaders of the anti-slavery Republican Party sought not to abolish slavery but merely to stop its extension into new territories and states in the American West. This policy was unacceptable to most Southern politicians, who believed that the growth of free states would turn the . power structure irrevocably against them. In November 1860, Lincoln’s election as president signaled the secession of seven Southern states and the formation of the Confederate States of America. Shortly after his inauguration in 1861, the Civil War began.
