The Atlantic Migration, 1607–1860: A History of the Continuing Settlement of the United States is a Pulitzer Prize-winning book by American historian Marcus Lee Hansen. The book covers the social and economic background of emigrant groups to the United States from colonial days to the American Civil War.[1]

The book was published after the death of Hansen. Historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Sr. turned the rough draft developed by Hansen into a polished manuscript. The book was published by the Harvard University Press in 1940.[1]
