How the fuck is there not any more Czechs in oklahoma?
I literally live off a road named "czech hall'
Yukon, Oklahoma is a Czech settlement
I just was in the town of Prague, Oklahoma yesterday
>constantly hear about us being the third biggest nationality in the US
>seemingly occupy only a tiny geographical pocket of the country
North East is one of the densest parts of the US though
Most of the areas that identify as "American" in Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Tennessee were settled by the Irish and Scottish.
>Because it was hard as fuck to get through the mountains and no one else wanted the land
>tfw irrelevant even as immigrants
That map is over 16 years old.
British-origin people who have been here for the longest. WASPs.
Here's a tl;dr map that excludes nig nogs
>tfw nothing but english going back until the early 1800s
>family all arrived as immigrants in my state, never moved from or to here
>tfw only person i know who identifies as "english" when asked
>tfw people ask why i don't have an accent
>tfw everybody around me identifies as irish, german or scottish, and their families probably all arrived by the turn of the 20th century

Little Chute, WI. Nice place though
Fucking Napoopan sold Louisiana, there could be written "France" in the middle of the map but no
There were no laws passed during those times that forced people to change their names, you're just making shit up:
>During World War I, a Brooklyn judge refused the application of a Weitz to become a Weeks. “There is no good reason why persons of German extraction should be permitted to conceal the fact by adopting through the aid of the court names of American or English origin,” the judge ruled. “It may involve some moral courage to bear German surnames or patronymics in these days, but the discomfort can best be borne by a display of genuine loyalty to this country.”
I'm from central Appalachia. Family has been in eastern KY and southern West Virginia for over 200 years. Both sides trace back to northern England.
I just identify as American, though the town my great x 6 grandfather is from is called Shillbottle which is sorta kekworthy.
There's a town nearby called Pella that's big on 'muh Dutch herritage'
I still like Napoléon but if you are going to sell this fuck huge of territory, make sure you win fater at least
I could it would have been sold partially so we'd keep a piece and you'd be able to keep pushing West, but in another context we could have sold it for more. At the time there wasn't really a choice the money was needed.
A lot of people said afterwards that the purchase was illegal because according to the Constitution Napoléon had to ask the Parliament to sell it.
>2 144 476 km2
>529 911 680 acres
>3 cents the fucking acre
I'm not the other guy, and maybe there weren't laws passed (I honestly am not sure) but there were definitely a sizable amount of Germans that changed their last name and discontinued speaking German to their children. It was inevitable that they'd stop speaking german of course, but it's not some sort of mythical cultural phenomenon either.
You're a brash liar, I'll give you that.
>The response of German Americans to these tactics was often to Americanize names (e.g. Schmidt to Smith, Müller to Miller) and to limit the use of the German language in public places, especially churches.
There aren't many things that piss me off when talking about history, but this one's just a shame
With the money he raised enough men to become the major power of the continent but on the long term it would have probably been more profitable to keep it, given his demise
>German street names in many cities were changed. German and Berlin streets in Cincinnati became English and Woodward. In Chicago Lubeck, Frankfort, and Hamburg streets were renamed Dickens, Charleston, and Shakespeare. In New Orleans, Berlin Street was renamed for General Pershing, head of the American Expeditionary Force. In Indianapolis, Bismarck Avenue and Germania Street were renamed to Pershing Avenue and Belleview Street, respectively in 1917,
As an example, is that not brought about by government decision?
I believe he sold it just to spite Great Britain, who were gravely concerned about American Expansionism. I mean they actually gave the land to Spain just so we couldn't get our hands on it after France lost the French & Indian war.
Quebec border towns and some South Louisiana cities.
New Orleans has French-esque feel to it with some Francophone immigrants, but the city is a shithole overall and most everything is done in English.
NYC has a large concentration of Francophone people. It's pretty nice.
New Orleans probably, although it's more a French/Spanish/Southern mashup. I think America in general has more French in it than we're commonly given credit for....
Can't seem to find a map of Canadian ancestry in the United States. It's probably pretty muddled as quite a few Canadians - just as Americans do - will list their ancestry as the country their grandparents (or further) were from before they would list their ancestry as Canadian. I know there are a lot of us Canadians in the border areas, and proportionally greater percentages in Montana, the Dakotas and other areas without significant populations.
I'm from Bristol country. I think Spanish and Portuguese are about equal usage around here. My neighbors are from Cape Verde, a lot of people have Azorean and Madeiran ancestry, and recently a lot of Brazilians have been moving here, probably because of the established Portuguese language community.
My mom's a nurse in a neurology ward and occasionally she gets gifts. Most recently is was import Anise liquor made in Madeira.
I know there isn't a lot of them here, that's not what I meant. I meant that I would expect them to be maybe spread out into a few more areas, and more relevant areas than North Dakota.
I have the impression that Boston has a lot of Brazilians for some reason.
You are welcome.
Somewhere in Scandinavia, also based
both based and not so based, but mostly based
i hate mexicans
please go away, god damn you shameless mooches
thanks for pizza but you gave us Jersey Shore so 5/10 at best
This does not look right. Most of the Appalachain mountain people are pure Scots after 200 years of inbreeding. The most pure people in the Americas besides uncontaminated Amazon tribes probably.
my ex gf is greek and is a total cunt so fuck you, 1/10
>brazilians having enough money to emigrate
I know one BR immigrant and he is adopted by 2 WASPs and raised here, dont kid yourself
He's wrong. Boston does have a lot of Brazilians. Bristol does as well and most people in Bristol either commute to Boston or Providence to work, so it doesn't make much difference.
I think if asked I would identify as American on for these maps, because while I know I have german and British heritage, I think it's probably pretty muddled at this point and my ancestors have been in this country for so long I basically am just 'American'
I've always lived near that dark brown cluster in northwestern iowa and southwestern minnesota. lots of van ede, van der linden, van de stroet, and veens around here
English ancestry typically ranks low on these lists since it's self reported, and British is the oldest and basically the "default" state, but the actual number is much much higher

Step up, nigga.
Here, Croatian Americans
Dude, how is this even possible?
