Kentucky's German Pioneers: H. A. Rattermann's History


By 1790, Kentucky’s population was 14% German, and by 1990 the population of German ancestry had risen to 22%. This work consists of a collection of articles translated from German, which originally appeared in the well-known 19th century German-American historical journal, Der Deutsche Pionier, published in Cincinnati by the German Pioneer Society, and which was edited for the greater part of its existence by H. A. Rattermann. This work concentrates on the pre-1848, or pioneer period of Kentucky’s German heritage.
