Home New Acquisitions Winter New Acquisitions Winter Generally language had been the prime factor for the construction of German-American identity. In the face of little hope for the language preservation the German language had been glorified.
The legend about the defeat in the vote due to a single vote of a German American about German becoming the national language of the USA had been stylized to a warning signal of language loss. And Pennsylvania-Dutch was pointed out as an example for language preservation. With a higher historical consciousness identity constructors aimed for more social influence.
In order to legitimate own demands and weaken the Anglo-American claim as first Americans it was also searched for earlier references of German immigration. Furthermore the German-American achievements were emphasized, German virtues were connected with German-American heroes and their worship was pushed. Above all ethnical theorists looked for the connection of US-myths like the winning of the west to German-American identity.
In order to interest Germans and German Americans for their history and to produce a borderless all-German consciousness the Kulturarbeiter propagated genealogy. Although the Kulturarbeiter on both sides of the Atlantic had a great deal in common there existed also differences in their theoretical and practical performance due to different circumstances. Thus the Kulturarbeit of the German-American protagonists was less dissimilatoric than the one of the inland-Germans. Especially in Germany in the time of the Third Reich the following changes of paradigms can be found: a the equating of the German Americans with the foreign-Germans Auslandsdeutschen in Europe, b the replacement of the primacy of language by Rasse , c the orientation away from the urban to the rural Germanness, d caused by the war devaluation of the attachment to the soil and enhancement of the preparedness for migration.

Marlene Jochem and Jens Stoecker, eds. Efford, Alison Clark. Examines how German immigrants helped influence American citizenship after the Civil War and Emancipation, especially concerning the key issue of whether African-Americans would be granted the vote.
Efford points out that German immigrants, particularly those who were refugees from the Revolutions of in Europe, were engaged in Reconstruction politics through the Republican Party and later -- after the unification of the German state -- the Liberal Republican Party. Highly conscious of their own new status as American citizens, German Americans infused with the ideals of liberal nationalism supported the claims of citizenship for black men in North America.
