About this product
- DescriptionBetween 1820 and 1910, nearly five and a half million German-speaking immigrants came to the United States in search of new homes, new opportunities, and freedom from European tyrannies. Most settled in the Midwest, and many came to Wisconsin, whose rich farmlands and rising cities attracted three major waves of immigrants. By 1900, German farmers, merchants, manufacturers, editors, and educators to say thing of German churches (both Catholic and Lutheran), cultural institutions, food, and folkways had all set their mark upon Wisconsin. In the most recent census (1990), more than 53 percent of the state's residents considered themselves German the highest of any state in the Union. In this best-selling book, w with updated text and additional historical photographs, Richard H. Zeitlin describes the values and ideas the Germans brought with them from the Old Country; highlights their achievements on the farm, in the workplace, and in the academy over the course of 150 years; and explains why their impact has been so profound and pervasive.
