Product Details
By: Phillip G. Davies

The Welsh entered Wisconsin in substantial numbers between 1840 and 1890. Most were small farmers in search of arable land on which to raise their crops and families. Unlike other ethnic groups, the Welsh settled together and dreamed of a Welsh state of exclusively Welsh communities. They tended to worship in their own churches, and to cling to their language and customs. They were alone among the people of the British Isles in that they did not speak English as a mother tongue. This volume contains anecdotes from early immigrant life, as well as photographs and a detailed history of Welsh churches in Wisconsin.
