"It is no every emigrant who succeeds; no, it is only the sober, the honest, and industrious..."

"What is an American?" is about a man, Hector St. John de Crevecoeur, whom was a French immigrant a immigrated to New York.The passage goes on to talk about how greatly his life has changed and his journey in transitioning to an American.


I selected the picture of the American flag because to me, it seemed as though Crevecoeur was very happy with the decision he made, to immigrate to the United States. I selected the song "God Bless the U.S.A." by Lee Greenwood because Crevecoeur was proud to be known as, an American.
