This chapter recounts Capra’s grueling voyage to and arrival in America with his family in 1903. The journey took thirteen days. Eight days out, on May 18, Capra marked his sixth birthday. On Sunday morning, May 24, his feet made their first contact with American soil on Ellis Island. Capra’s family later boarded a train to California and arrived in Los Angeles on June 3, 1903 to start their new life.
