The first large wave of Hungarian immigration to the United States occurred in 1849-1850 when the so-called “forty-eighters” fled from retribution by Austrian authorities after the defeat of the Hungarian Revolution in 1848.

By the turn of the century, the United States saw an immigration boom primarily of Southern and Eastern Europeans. This wave consisted of approximately 650,000-700,000 ethnic Hungarians seeking a better life in America.

The circumstances of the third wave of immigration had much in common with the first wave. In 1956, Hungary was again under the power of a foreign state, and again Hungarians rose up in revolution. Like the revolution of 1848, the 1956 revolution and freedom fight failed and led to the emigration of 200,000 “fifty-sixers” fleeing persecution after the revolution. 40,000 of them found their way to the United States.

According to the 2006 U.S. Census, there are 1,563,081 persons with Hungarian ancestry in the United States. States with the largest Hungarian American populations include Ohio, New York, California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Michigan, and Florida. But the highest number of Hungarians living in the same place is in New York City.
