On President’s Day, Feb. 15, 2021, Lynne Breen, the author of this anthology of German influences, took us on a virtual road trip through the United States, from Massachusetts to Washington, DC, tracing the contributions and footsteps of Germans and German-Americans. The event included a special guest appearance by Clifton Truman Daniel, the grandson of President Harry Truman, whose endorsement can be found on the back cover.
