Two major influences are when people would immigrate to the us they would most likely move by the water because they would moves towards the US from boats and to say by the water for food.
Two places that had high numbers of immigration are California and New York City. the reason why those states had a lot of immigrants i because they were both by the water.
The British moved to the US from Britain.Germans group came from the country of Hesse.

The two major influences in the migration was the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains. The two places that had high numbers of immigration during the 1800's was the San Francisco Bay area and St. Louis, Missouri. They had high numbers of immigration because many sellers and businesses who wanted to ship their goods to other countries and because of the two major rivers the Mississippi and the Missouri.Two groups of people that migrated to the U.S during the 1800's was the Italian immigrants and the German immigrants. The German immigrants come over to the U.S because many of them were farmers looking for places to raise crops or cattle. The Italian immigrants come to the U.S because of the soil.

one of the two major influences is the homestead act of 1962 and the Mississippi and the two places with high immigration could be either St. Louis, Missouri, and Nicodemus, Kansas * Many immigrants, especially Italian immigrants, were drawn to California.

Two major influences are the Mississippi river and the Rocky Mountains.

The San Francisco Bay area attracted many sellers and businesses because they wanted to ship their goods to other countries. Boston, Charleston, Seattle, and New Orleans had already developed into major urban centers by the mid-1800s because they were on seaports where trade could take place.


Chinese and Irish immigrants came to America to help build the First Transcontinental Railroad.
German immigrants settled in Midwestern states like Illinois, Iowa, and Nebraska.

One major influence in human migration in the U.S. is after the civil war the Mississippi River was a major influence on migration to the western United States.Former slaves and European immigrants, and others passed through New Orleans to aboard steamboats and travel on the Mississippi River.


Another influence in human migration in the U.S is St. Louis, Missouri,it grew rapidly in the years following the Civil War, earning the nickname "Gateway to the West." Two major rivers, the Mississippi and the Missouri, meet where St. Louis is located. From St. Louis, people could travel by steamboat on either river.


Two places that had high numbers of immigration is St. Louis and the Mississippi because people got to go on steam boats to go up and down either river.


One group of immigrant is the Italian Immigrants were drawn to California. The climate and coastal landscape reminded them of there homes in Italy, and the conditions were ideal for warm-weather crops like fruits and nuts.


Another group of immigrants is the Chinese and Irish immigrants they came to America to help build the First Transcontinental Railroad, which was completed in 1869. A golden spike was ceremonially driven into the ground in Utah, after track was laid over more than 1,700 miles between Sacramento, California, and Omaha, Nebraska.


This is all the things I learned about Human Environmental Interaction.

1. The Mississippi River was a major influence on migration to the western United States after the Civil War.

Western migration was attractive for several reasons. One reason was the increasing population and decreasing living spaces in Eastern cities and states.

2. Boston, Charleston, Seattle, and New Orleans had already developed into major urban centers by the mid-1800s because they were on seaports where trade could take place.

3. Immigrants from Norway and Sweden settled in large groups in Northern states like Wisconsin and Minnesota.

German immigrants settled in Midwestern states like Illinois, Iowa, and Nebraska.
