Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Maltese American is a citizen or resident of the United States with ethnic origins in the southern European nation of Malta.The first immigrants from Malta in the United States arrived to this country in the mid-eighteenth century to the city of New Orleans, Louisiana. Many Americans assumed Malta was part of Italy. In some cases "Born Malta, Italy" was put on tombstones of Maltese because of the confusion. However, at this time and in the nineteenth century the Maltese who emigrated to the United States were still scarce. In fact, in the 1860s, only emigrated to the United States between five and ten Maltese every year. The majority of them were agricultural workers, and, in New Orleans case, market gardeners and vegetable dealers. After World War I, in 1919, Maltese immigration to the US increased. Thus, just in the first quarter of 1920 more than 1,300 Maltese immigrated to the United States. Detroit, Michigan, with jobs in the expanding automobile industry, drew the largest share of immigrants. It is believed that in the following years, more than 15,000 Maltese people emigrated in the United States, getting later the U.S. citizenship.
