The life of Martin Luther is one of the most fascinating people in the history of Christianity: parental conflict, spiritual agony, life-changing moments, princes, popes, emperors, castles, kidnapping, mobs, revolution, massacres, politics, courage, controversy, disguises, daring escapes, humor and romance.
In the 17th century, Lutherans began to migrate to the United States, bringing their language, culture, and Lutheran faith with them. It is our desire to preserve our German Lutheran heritage by sharing materials which reflect our German Lutheran beginnings and the transition of these early settlers.
