Devastated by warfare for centuries and hammered by alternating seasons of drought and torrential rains, the Hesse valley motherland, all of central Europe and the Isles of the British Empire were exhausted. The land would provide no more for its people.
From the beginning of time the land in central Europe had welcomed each and every one. Settlers came from the four corners of the known world seeking a better place to exist, finding it in this land that would have many names. Through the passing of centuries, both the land and the people became known for their developed areas, and eventually part of a larger area they called Deutschland.
Now the people begin to leave. Reminiscent of their forefathers before them, there was a new land offering opportunity, abundance and freedom not known before. Selling all worldly possessions, the people left their beloved Deutschland, their Mutter land, with nothing but hope and optimism. They left for America--Sie haben für Amerika verlassen.

Resurrected Memories

                                               *  *  *

In the 18th Century over 50,000 people left their homeland in Germany, their Deutschland, for America.  One-fourth of them never survived the treacherous six month voyage across the stormy Atlantic Ocean.  Mostly settling in Pennsylvania--on free land from William Penn and his “Holy Experiment”-they raised their families and began a new life in a strange new land shared by Native Americans and wild animals.  Later, with the ending of the American Revolutionary War, some migrated down The Great Wagon Road and resettled again, on virgin land in the Carolinas.  One these pioneers—Johannes Wilhelm Herrmann—was my ancestor.  This is his untold story.

Jim Herman’s passion to resurrect the past continues in his latest book, Voyage to America 1766. This story follows his first book, Resurrected Memories: The Story of a Lifetime. More information about the author, his books, and extensive ancestral documentation can be found on his web site: http://www.jim-herman.net
