A paper which looks at the history of German immigration to the United States.

This paper studies the causes of German immigration to the United States. It investigates the treatment of German immigrants from approximately 1810-1860 by other Americans and explores why this immigration was considered particularly successful.
“Around the year 1700, many Germans were fleeing their homeland to find an easier life in other European countries, the Western Hemisphere, and Australia due to extremely violent conditions. Armies of various nationalities were repeatedly attacking the country. Inhabitants of the southwestern part, especially, were constantly robbed and tortured. Entire villages were often burnt down and their inhabitants killed. In 1709 about 15,000 Germans left for Britain, and 3,000 crossed the Atlantic to New York. In 1745, there were an estimated 45,000 Germans living in Pennsylvania alone. (Adams, p 2)”
