Format: Paperback
From 1820 to 1910 German-speaking immigrants immigrated to Wisconsin in search of new homes, opportunities, political and religious freedom. By 1900 Wisconsin had a wealth of German farmers, merchants, manufacturers, editors, educators, churches (both Catholic and Lutheran), and communities making up the Wisconsin social, political, cultural, and economic landscape. With his seminal treatise, Germans In Wisconsin, Richard Zeitlin describes the values and ideas Germans brought with them to Wisconsin as he highlights their achievements in both rural and urban settings over the course of the last 150 years. A "must" for all Wisconsin school and community library collections, historical photographs enhance Zeitlin's informative and engaging text.

Since My heritage is German I enjoyed reading this book. It was very informative. I did some research on my own and reading this book gave me much more information.

This book is among a few works that deals with The Americanization of German immigrants in Wisconsin, or any other state.
