Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month commemorates the immigration of the first Japanese to the U.S. on May 7, 1843. It also marks the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracts were Chinese immigrants.
