When the Great War broke out in Europe in 1914, 8 million Americans or 8.7% of the U.S. population were German-born or had parents born in German-speaking Europe. In Wisconsin the numbers were 2.4 million and 38%. The vast majority were loyal Americans who at the same time were proud of their German heritage, traditions, and language, — expressed in the motto “Germania ist unsere Mutter, Columbia unsere Braut” (Germania is our mother, Columbia is our bride).  This presentation by Antje Petty, Associate Director, Max Kade Institute, uses German-language newspapers and magazines, published in the United States during the World War I Era, to provide a glimpse into German-Americans’ view of the world, as well as their position in American society at the time.
