From 1792 until 1816, most of Europe was at war. Citizens were drafted into armies in a world to fight in wars whose causes they didn't understand. The nobility owned all the land and you were forced into a profession based on what your parents did. Poverty was everywhere and the new United States offered land, opportunity and freedom to choose. It drew and still draws people who want to better themselves and provide a better life for their children like a magnet.
