Author: Daniel Nead
Published: 2002 reprint of 1914 original
Paperback, 303 pages
Based on findings in the Archives of Maryland, the Maryland Gazette, and other sources, Mr. Nead assembled this celebrated exposition of the Pennsylvania-Germans in Maryland. Taking the early settlements, churches, colonial wars, and the Revolution as points of departure, he quotes chapter and verse on the origins of the Pennsylvania migration to Maryland, identifies many of the early Pennsylvania-German settlers, and settles the question of the settlers' cultural and political influence in the state.
