          Dear Ms. Thomas,

           

          Thank you for contacting History Hub!

           

          Below is a list of resources we compiled that cover German immigration to the U.S. in the 1850s:

           

          German Immigration article from Gale

           

          The Germans in America chronology from the Library of Congress

           

          German Immigration from the Library of Congress

           

          There is also a book available on German immigration: Wittke, Carl. Refugees of Revolution: The German Forty-Eighters in America. Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1952. The book examines German immigration to the U.S. following the failed 1848 revolution in Germany. The book may be available at a university library or through interlibrary loan.

           

          We hope you find this information useful. Best of luck in your research!
