October is German American Heritage Month in recognition of the founding of Germantown, Pennsylvania in October 1683.

We owe a huge amount of gratitude to these intellectuals who have shaped American culture including authors such as Stephen King, Dr. Seuss, and John Steinbeck. Read about some of these great authors and more with this list that celebrates the strength of German-Americans who triumph over hardship.
