What convinced Johann to go to America?
The 450 acres of land and for his religious freedom he also wanted to see the new world.
How did he feel about the decision later?
He felt proud and happy because strangers looked surprised to see that he owned the lake. He also enjoyed going to Pennsylvania on market days to see the houses and go through the cobble stone streets. He loved sitting in his wagon watching the different nationalities of people talking French,German and Italian. The decision he made now gave him ideas of how to make more crops or more varities of fruit and vegetables.
