Statue of Liberty Club
Wow! 130 years and still standing tall
After all this time she still has great posture. If we could all be so lucky.
She had another awesome day with cake, music, special visitors from her home country, and a nice fall day. ... See MoreSee Less

“There was no out, there was just in.”
Before the 1960s almost everything about living openly as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) person was illegal. New York City laws against homosexual activities were particularly harsh. The Stonewall Uprising on June 28, 1969 is a milestone in the quest for LGBT civil rights and provided momentum for a movement. #PRIDE #NPS101 #FindYourPark

Hugh Mulzac was the first African-American to command a ship in the United States Merchant Marine. Born on Union Island in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Mulzac immigrated to the United States in 1918 and quickly earned his shipping master's certificate. He briefly worked as a captain for Marcus Garvey's Black Star Line, but it wasn't until World War II that he was offered command of a US ship. The SS Booker T. Washington was the first Liberty Ship to be named after an African-American, and operated with an integrated crew. On this manifest for the SS Booker T. Washington from 1945 bit.ly/2sUTMZ7, Mulzac's rank is given as "Master" (column 5) and several ethnicities and nationalities are represented in his crew. Shown: Mulzac with the crew of the SS Booker T. Washington. #CAHM #CaribbeanAmericanHeritageMonth ... See MoreSee Less
Grover Cleveland, who died on this date in 1908, was the only President to leave the White House and return for a second term four years later. Cleveland was also the only President to marry in the Executive Mansion when he took Frances Folsom as his bride on June 2, 1886. During his 1st term, President Cleveland accepted the Statue of Liberty from France in 1886. He was elected again in 1892—the year Ellis Island opened. One of nine children of a Presbyterian minister, Grover Cleveland was born in New Jersey in 1837. #history ... See MoreSee Less

Marianne Sude came all the way from Norway to Ellis Island to see the place where her grandfather was processed through after his journey across the Atlantic. After being cleared through Ellis he went West, ending up in Minnesota where many Scandinavians settled. "It was very hard on my grandmother" she recalls, who was left in Norway for years with the children and never spoke about it. Marianne came into the American Family Immigration History Center to try and piece her own puzzle together--and she found more than one manifest for her grandfather showing he made a second trip back into the U.S. after being back at home for a few years. He became a street car driver between the Twin Cities in Minnesota and sent home money he earned. "My mother and I both grew up in the house built with the American money he earned!" she laughed. While many stories and details may never be known, our staff was so happy to help Marianne find some part of her family history. #FamilyFriday #Norway ... See MoreSee Less
