Large numbers of German immigrants joined the mostly English population.
Some Germans were among the first European immigrants to arrive in the New World, joining the English in Jamestown, Virginia, in 1600. In search of land and religious freedom in the 18th century. This caused the population to change not just in number of people, but also in culture. The Germans lent many points of their culture to the colony that was being established, these points remain in American culture to this day, as a decorated Christmas tree and the figure of Santa Claus delivering presents.
