The Germans in St. Louis

The German settlement in Saint Louis began in the 1830s. There was a major migration into Saint Louis from German states in the mid-1800s. Germans were a cohesive group into the twentieth century. By 1880 some 46 percent of public school children were German and, a year later, 20,000 of the young scholars in St. Louis still received their lessons in German every day.
