History Talks! Germans in the South Puget Sound Region in the late 19th Century
After the Civil War, quite a few young men from the Prussian region of Germany made their way to the South Puget Sound, lured by expectations of prosperity—jobs, free land—and religious and social freedoms. This talk focuses on the life and death of one, Friedrich Richter, who for a time owned property on the east bank of the Nisqually Delta, land that one day would become part of the Braget Family Farm. Like many, Richter came to the region by way of Chicago, where he was on hand to experience the rowdy events of post-war politics. After his death, those involved in the administration of his estate and the sale of his land and personal property included many well-known members of the community, each with special stories to tell.
