History -- written as it happened 120 years ago! Crime, accidents, commerce, entertainment, government, politics, transportation, births, deaths, marriages, anniversaries -- everything you expect in a newspaper! Includes the Sigel correspondence in the Effingham Volksblatt, the only German-language newspaper in the area. Includes surname index, introduction. Sigel's residents were primarily of German extraction, and the Sigel correspondence covers their activities. Since the Volksblatt was a German-language newspaper, there's a special emphasis on German-Americans, but of course non-German newsmakers are also covered. Original German and English translation side-by-side.

The book is available for immediate shipment.  Please send e-mail to arrange payment via Paypal, check, or money order. A copy will soon be on display at the Monastery Museum, which is open from 12:30 - 4:00 on the first Sunday of the month, April through November.
