In this episode, I talk with Andrew Torget about the connection
between Bremerhaven and Galveston, German migration to Texas, and
the role of Texas Germans’ in the American Civil War (1861–1865).
The two port cities were important engines of regional development
and played a significant role in the transatlantic migration of the
nineteenth century. Andrew and I use this traditional connection
between Bremen and Texas as a starting point for a transatlantic
conversation about Texas German history. Guest: Andrew Torget is a
historian of nineteenth-century North American history at the
University of North Texas, focusing on the expansion of American
slavery into the West. He came to the University of Bremen this
semester as a Fulbright scholar to work on his next book. At
Bremen, Andrew taught courses on “The Rise and Fall of American
Slavery” and on “American History since 1865”.
