about this item

In 1844 a group of noblemen offers help to all disappointed and desperate Germans. They advertise for Germans wanting to emigrate to Texas, where they wish to create a new Germany. Thousands accept the offer of the “Society for the Protection of German Immigrants in Texas” and depart for North America.One of these is the revolutionary Karl Engelbach. To avoid persecution, he and his son Johann have to leave their small farm in northern Hesse one night in March of 1844. Father and son are forced to undertake a dangerous flight through their divided country until they arrive in Bremen, where they take a ship sailing to Charleston. After their arrival in South Carolina, there is still a long way to Texas, and the Engelbachs have to deal with many difficulties to get there. In Texas they join the other German settlers and continue their journey from the coast into the heart of the wild, uncivilized Texas, where they and the other German settlers have to struggle with perilous dangers. Will they ever reach their Promised Land? Or will the Texas project of the Noblemen’s Society end in disaster?
