Summary:
German Americans were one of the earliest groups of immigrants to America. Looking to escape war, poverty and religious persecution, many settled in Virginia and New York as early as the 1600s. Skilled farmers, weavers, carpenters and clockmakers, they fought for their new homeland in the Revolutionary War, opposed slavery and fought for the Union in the Civil War. During World Wars I and II, German Americans faced much hysteria from other Americans, but by 1945, 560,000 German refugees had arrived in the United States to escape persecution. Today, Germans are one of the largest single ethnic groups in America. Part of the Multicultural Peoples of North America Video Series, a compelling collection that celebrates the heritage of different cultural groups in North America.

Only available in the US.
