      By Richard H Zeitlin

      Between 1820 and 1910, nearly five and a half million German immigrants came to the United States. Most settled in the Midwest, and many came to Wisconsin, whose rich farmlands and rising cities attracted three major waves of immigrants. Today German influence in Wisconsin is still quite apparent, from churches, to food and beverages, to cultural and educational institutions. In a 1990 census, more than 53 percent of the state's residents considered themselves German--the highest of any state in the United States.

      Learn about the values and ideas the Germans brought with them from the Old Country, including their achievements on the farm, in the workplace and in academia over the course of 150 years in Wisconsin. This revised book features additional photographs and an expanded text.
