4A3 Jack Bledsoe How I came to the U.S.

I am Jack Bledsoe. I came from Italy I had many friends but none could afford the trip or were to sick. 7 of them passed all of the tests but the ships did not make the trip. The town I came from it is called Lazio . My school is called Lazio Elementary. I was born in 1904. It was a hard time for my family and I. I came to Ellis Island when I was 10. I have to we had 2 kids and 2 adults. In had a nice brother named John. John had a nice time back in Italy but it got bad coming to the U.S.. I had a hard time my self. We got the worst room of the whole ship. The food worst thing of all. Then one morning we saw it. It was the Statue of Liberty. I saw it standing in the New York Harbor. I knew it was a gift from France. I knew that because I studied it in school. I also know that It had 7 rays for 7 continents and 7 seas. My dad told me that the book is a symbol for the law and government. I had to stay in New York because we did not have any money to go anywhere else so we stayed in New York.

  • My favorite thing I did for this protect was this adobe spark.
  • My second favorite was listing to the audio.
  • My third favorite was reading the stops.
