The German Americans by Barry Moreno, Peg Ashbrock

Today, more Americans claim German ancestry than claim ancestry from any other ethnic group. Driven by overpopulation, poverty, and constant warfare among neighboring religious factions, large-scale emigration from Germany occurred in the 18th and 19th centuries. Once in America, German immigrants found prosperity in farming, industry, and science. Germans played a considerable role in shaping agricultural life in America, and - as demonstrated by popular festivals and celebrations such as Oktoberfest and German-American Day - German culture continues to have a strong influence in the fabric of American society.
