A New Kind of Freedom

Essential Question 1: What convinced Johann to go to America?
Essential Question 2: How did he feel about the decision later?

The passage I have just read is about a man named Johann who is trying to decide whether or not to move to the New World and leave Germany, their home. Johann finally decided to move to the New World. When he docked in the New World or America, they received 450 acres of land since each person recieved 50 acres and Johann's family had 9 people. After they had farmed all their land for 5 years, Johann started to feel that his move to America was worth it, totally worth it.

1. I think what convinced Johann to go to America was because in America, people were allowed to worship whomever they pleased, but in Germany, people were forced into believing a certain religion. 2. I think that Johann was pretty pleased with his decicion. After all, 450 acres of land is pretty attracting. Furthurmore, they could be free to choose their own religion. So I think that Johann never regretted moving to the New World.
