This brief survey traces the basic outlines of German immigration and settlement in the history of Ohio. As the largest ethnic element in the state, German-Americans have exerted a profound influence on Ohio's history. Five basic periods in Ohio German history are identified and discussed in this work: The Colonial Period (before the American Revolution); The New Republic (until 1830); The Mass Migration and Settlement Period (from 1830 to World War I); The World Wars Period; and the Roots and Ethnic Revival Period of the latter half of the 20th century and beyond. If this book kindles your interest in Ohio German history, there is a list of further pertinent reading material in the select bibliography.
