The most effective arguments of my essay will be placed in the ending body paragraphs. The reason I have chosen to place them here, is to show how the Irish, German and Italian immigrants overcame adversity to become Americans and to give to their children a better future and life than they had. The arguments will show historical facts from the appropriate eras, and hopefully (depending on what I can find) the testimonials of those that were there at the time. This will help to reinforce my argument in the reader’s minds and make the essay more memorable.
