This paper focuses upon a unique group of European Immigrants who settled the American Midwest in the late 19th Century. The Volga Deutsch, or Russian Germans, originally left Germany and settled along the Volga River Basin in the late 18th Century. When political tensions and economic conditions in Russia became unbearable, they left for various parts of the world. Many settled in the state of Kansas, where they managed to independently thrive culturally and agriculturally.
