Ellis Island Breanna elmer

Ellis Island is very interesting. It was the point at which many immigrants got freedom

Ellis Island is in New York by the Statue of Liberty. It is named after Samual Ellis. Samual Ellis gave the land to thhe government for an army base.

Ellis island used to be used as an immigration center but now is a museum. Ellis Island is off the coast of New York close to the Statue of Liberty. Ellis Island is 27 acres. On the island immigrants would get checked to see if they had diseases. They would go through mental and physical exams.

Annie Moore was the first immigrant to be checked and sent off to New York. Samual Ellis was the man who owned land before it became Ellis Island.

Ellis Island represents liberty because a lot of people came to us for freedom.

that is why Ellis Island is a good symbol for the US.
