Polish-American relations go way back to the first colonies and great generals like Kościuszko and Pułaski, but the first significant wave of immigration started already in the 19th century and lasted well into Polish independence in 1918. Polish Americans had a great influence on the culture, cuisine and even politics in their new country. Today, the count of Poles in the US is approximately 9 million people, with some estimates claiming there are 19-20 million people of Polish descent across the country. With such a big number, there are many Americans that can show Polish ancestry – and benefit from it!
