The largest ancestry in US comes from the Germans and the Irish What makes up the demography of US now? 228,000 chinese had immigrated to America for railroad jobs and the gold rush. 1850s-1870s: Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882 was passed, which specifically limited further Chinese immigration Large scale Chinese immigration did not occur until 1965 DEMOGRAPHIC/IMMIGRATION DEMOGRAPHIC/IMMIGRATION DEMOGRAPHIC/IMMIGRATION DEMOGRAPHIC/IMMIGRATION DEMOGRAPHIC/IMMIGRATION People coming to the new world to hope for a better life. Chinese British Colonial times 1600's The English colonist came to America to explore the new world and most importantly, practice their freedom of belief (Puritans).

Native Indians were put on reservations and many treaties were passed not in favor of them. But finally: English is the most common used language in the USA German/Irish The German and the Irish came because of the potato famine, war in homeland, and prosecution of religious beliefs. 1600s and 1700s May 19, 1921 Emergency Quota Act was passed.

President Bush decreased tax rates for individuals in the United States of all income levels. This was one of the causes for the later recession as the government had less revenue pouring in, thus increased deficit spending.

The damage cost $65.6 Billion and was the largest storm recorded by diameter of 1,100 miles. Connections: Glaciers and mountain snows are rapidly melting. For example, Montana's Glacier National Park now has only 27 glaciers, versus 150 in 1910 Industrialization and Urbanization is the cause of the increase of CO2 released in the air which is the main culprit of global warming January 6th, 2001- Confirmation that George W. Bush wins 2000 election.
Despite not gaining the popular vote, he earns enough electoral votes to become the next president. November 4, 2008 - Barack Obama is elected President of the United States. This shows the switch from a Republican party to Democratic Party Connection:

This was a major victory for America in fighting terrorism. July 2008 - Oil prices reach an all-time high.
Oil prices have been steadily increasing over the decade to peak at $147 dollars per barrel. This further hurt the stability of the economy. Connection: During the Cold War American troops were stationed in Iran during World War II to help transfer military supplies to the Soviet Union and protect Iranian oil. 1943-1945 This started the involvement of US in the middle east affairs. Al-Qaeda and bin Laden said that U.S. support of Israel, the presence of U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia, and sanctions against Iraq are the motives for the 9-11 attacks. Oil Prices Important Event: Connection: Much of the petroleum comes from the middle east.

Reasons for high oil price would be the Iraq War (March 20, 2003 –December 18, 2011), establishment of the OPEC ( September 10, 1960) and the high demands cause by the increase of technology (automobile) over the past decades. *Gun Control June 7, 2003 - First gay bishop appointed Vermont is the first state to allow
