Ever wonder what our ancestors must have felt, and what life was like, to uproot their entire family and move to America? I mean WE know how great it is. Can you imagine what life had to be like in Germany? Well on September 24th you can experience it first hand. And you can visit some of the sites that were so important to them, like the farm of Gottfried Duden, author of A Report on A Journey, which inspired so many.
On that Saturday afternoon, you will become a member of the Giessen Emigration Society, a politically motivated group of 500 who settled in St. Charles, Warren, and Franklin Counties in Missouri. You will visit the community, hear their stories and learn what became of their Utopia.
Please join us at 1:00 pm on Saturday, September 24th for Utopia Revisited.
