Why did they come to America?

In the end, the reason for coming to America may by summarized by this paragraph from The Industry Standard, February 26, 2001 by Jonathan Webb:

Our website has a section on why our Norwegian ancestors came to America. But I found this short quote summarizes things nicely.

"The idea that everyone in America has an equal chance, that our fates are not determined by accidents of birth, is not only one of our core values but also the one that most powerfully distinguishes us from most other nations."
