Hispanicization[edit]

Germans who settled in Texas were strongly influenced by their Tejano hosts. The collection of Spanish immigrants to Texas preceded, accepted, and largely integrated well with the German settlers who came later.

The Wikipedia article on Tejanos specifically talks about the integration of German settlers and how they became increasingly hispanicized while never forgetting their roots.

There's no need to be racist by pretending the Germans remained somehow an island unto themselves. Save that racism burden for another time. People who live here in Texas clearly understand how various immigrants learned to all get along and find themselves well integrated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.31.98.123 (talk) 23:44, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Delete Dwight D. Eisenhower[edit]

Eisenhower's photo should be deleted, as he doesn't have anything in common with most German immigrants to TX. It is absurd to include him here. His paternal ancesty went back to immigrants to PA in 1741, and he moved to KS at the age of two with his parents. --Parkwells (talk) 23:33, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Civil War[edit]

The careful omission of any discussion of the Germano-Texans in the Civil War suggests an unwillingness to admit most of them were Unionists.

This article could also benefit from a discussion of the German relationship with Tejanos. --Al-Nofi (talk) 20:31, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

In the section "Post-Civil War" the text makes only sense, when you change the text "1865 to 1980" to "1865 to 1880". I leave it up to the Author. (87.145.126.235 (talk) 10:33, 10 December 2009 (UTC))

World War 2[edit]

This article talks about World War 1, but suspiciously absent is World War 2. Is there anything to say to it?

What happened to the rest of this article?[edit]

This was a highly developed article; now it's a bare stub. I restored the references; surely there's some way to get this back into shape. Djembayz (talk) 21:32, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
