The Americanization Movement was a concerted effort during the late 19th and early 20th centuries to help new immigrants settle and assimilate into America's civic culture with the intent of promoting patriotism and productivity. These efforts primarily took the form of English language classes and courses in American civics but suffered from vague definitions of what "Americanization" meant besides learning the language, being loyal to the United States, and accepting our republican form of government. The Americanization movement was originally started by non-profit organizations with business support but it eventually grew to include government subsidies, public educational policy changes, and the creation of national holidays. The arrival of the so-called "new immigrants" in the late nineteenth century prompted the Americanization movement.
