As the Civil War ground to an end in 1865 and Nebraska gained statehood in 1867, men and women turned their attention to the west, ever seeking a better way of life. Immigrants from Europe continued to swarm the shores of America and mingle with the pioneers trudging toward the western sun. The Danes, too, finding little in their homeland to keep them there, or escaping the heavy hands of the German military, flocked to the promised land.
