German Immigration to Wisconsin

This class looks at people’s experiences of migration from Germany to Wisconsin in the 19th century. It examines the reasons they migrated, their experiences en route, and their work and leisure activities in the new state. The course draws on letters from immigrants held by the Wisconsin Historical Society and on their collection of historical photographs.
