The Ellis Island Immigration Station opens.  The first immigrant to pass through was a “rosy-cheeked Irish girl,” Annie Moore, age 15, from County Cork; she came with her two younger brothers to join their parents in New York City.  Between 1892 and 1954, over 12 million third class and steerage immigrants were processed at Ellis Island.
