German Immigrants

Immigrants Are All Over! -Cadin Marohl

Germany

German people started to move or immigrate here in the 1700's. They mostly moved in between 1820 and the early 1900's. They mostly came not for political reasons but because they kept getting into wars, they wanted land, and religious freedom. Now there is about 50,000,000 Germans here in the United States. They are by far the largest group of immigrants. The capital is Berlin. The flag has red, black, and yellow stripes.
