    In British English the expression 'the turn of the nineteenth century' alludes to the years quickly going before and promptly following 1801, 'the turn of the twentieth century' to the years encompassing 1901, etc. In American English it isn't so clear cut. 4

    There is no broad assention about what an expression like "turn of the nineteenth century" signifies. It seems to recommend the "transform of the nineteenth century into the twentieth" - i. e., the change from 1900 to 1901 (or, famously, 1899 to 1900).

    The United States experienced significant floods of movement amid the pioneer period, the initial segment of the nineteenth century and from the 1880s to 1920. Numerous workers came to America looking for more prominent financial chance, while a few, for example, the Pilgrims in the mid 1600s, landed looking for religious opportunity.
