        The Germans from Russia | Living and Working

        Learn how the Germans from Russia settled across America, but many found home in what came to be known as the German triangle which spanned across Manitoba and the Dakotas. The Germans were given land under the homestead act which led them away from living in villages, which they had grown accustomed to in the "old" country. Having to live so far from their neighbors caused isolation and many looked forward to visiting day. They were strong people who had inhabited land much like the land they had left, full of fierce winters, a place where "wind was always in the grass" and the fields were filled with stones.
