Hi! My name is Hans. I am an immigrant from Germany and I have come to Pennsylvania so I can practice my religion.
Many of the German people have fled from Western Europe because of the Protestant Reformation. I am a Lutheran but the Catholics don't like that so I had to leave.
Even though I escaped the religious persecution, finding a life here in America proves to be another challenge I have to face.
You see, I only came here to seek refuge, but I don't know any of the laws here and I don't speak very much English. Because of this, I find it very hard to find employment.
At first, the people of Pennsylvania didn't trust us Germans. They made us pledge our allegiance to England, but now they respect our self-sufficiency and our knowledge of crops.
For now, I must remain nothing more than a farmer, but someday I hope that I or even my children may get an education and become successful in this land of opportunity.
