Germans of Louisiana

Edited by walterp on . Posted in Germericana

A new book by Ellen C. Merrill with a foreword by Don Heinrich Tolzmann examines the state’s German buildings, towns, monuments, prominent individuals, and more.

This first comprehensive study of the German history and heritage of Louisiana provides information on the historical background of the colonial era, as well as immigration and settlement patterns of the nineteenth century.

Also included are details of typical trades and businesses founded, owned, or dominated by German immigrants, a history of churches and synagogues in the New Orleans area, and facts about German social and civic life.
