U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for January 12

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:

SATURDAY JANUARY 12: CROSSING THE RUBICON

Profile America — Saturday, January 12th.  Near this date in 49 B.C., Julius Caesar, leading the 13th Roman legion, crossed the Rubicon, a minor river in northeastern Italy, marking a boundary south of which a Roman general could not bring his troops.  Crossing the Rubicon, which has since come to mean passing a point of no return, precipitated a civil war.  Caesar triumphed, ending the Roman republic and launching imperial Rome.  Many generations later, the descendants of the Romans crossed a more formidable water barrier:  the Atlantic Ocean.  In 1832, three Italians were recorded as immigrants to the U.S.; by 1914, that number peaked at over 283,000.  Today there are nearly 17.5 million Americans of Italian ancestry, around 5½ percent of the population.  Profile America is in its 16th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
