Description: “In 1708, representatives of the first major wave of German immigrants arrived upon American shores. By that time, Germans had already been coming to America for a century, but this was the date associated with the first major wave—the first of many that would follow. The purpose of this work is to shed light on the history of this important event in the history of immigration and settlement in America. It addresses the question as to why German immigration suddenly became a massive population movement. To accomplish this goal, the editor has selected two essential works which illuminate this topic.” These works are: The German Exodus to England in 1709 by Frank Reid Diffenderffer, and The German Emigration to America, 1709-1740 by Henry Eyster Jacobs. The journey to America, and settlement, is a colorful part of German-American heritage.
