Chinese migration to the US in the 1850's how did they get here?
When did the Chinese immigrate to the US?
The first major immigration from Asia were the people that we refer to as Native Americans. A large increase in the Chinese population of the US resulted from the California Gold Rush of the 1850s. Chinese immigrants came with the dream of finding gold but found steady work as laborers, at first working for the miners and prospectors and operating businesses that supported them. They were a labor force already in place and available when building the transcontinental railroad began in the 1860s. Many Chinese arrived to work for and operate businesses to support the Chinese building the railroads.

Is the us dollar worth more than the Chinese yen?
The question is quite confusing. The Chinese currency is in yuan, while the yen is the currency of the Japanese. Comparing the dollar to both of them, I would say that the US dollar has a greater value than both. Here are the current exchange rates for the US dollar as compared to the yuan and the yen: 1 US dollar = 6.83 Chinese yuan 1 US dollar = 92.43 Japanese yen
