Letters of Republican politician Carl Schurz 1841-1869

Intimate Letters of Carl Schurz 1841-1869


Eminent German-American statesman Carl Schurz was an outstanding spokesman for the anti-slavery cause and the Republican party. One of his missions was to mobilize German-American communities against slavery, but he soon won a broader following. Schurz maintained residency in Watertown from 1855 to 1866, though his lecture tours and campaign speeches took him across the United States. In these letters, Schurz describes German immigrants and Americans, as well as the developing cities of the Midwest.
