DO NOT POST LINKS TO WIKIPEDIA!!! Go beyond the basics and try to get information like diary entries, first hand accounts, economic impact of these events, government responses to these situations, and most importantly for our discussion...HOW DID THESE EVENTS IMPACT US IMMIGRATION?!
Thanks, I look forward to viewing the links that you guys put up.
