When I discovered the history of this legislation, I decided to create a website about it for National History Day, an annual academic competition. This project was the result of a nine-month research process that truly paid off when it qualified for the national competition in Washington D.C. this June.
I hope you will learn something about the first Chinese immigrants in this country as well as how we've established our identities as Americans since then.
