American Ethnic Geography

Lots of Danes in Utah:

Swedes and Norwegians tended to more go to Minnesota and Wisconsin:

A little known fact in Denmark is that a lot of the Danish emigrants to America were mormons.

Denmark supplied more immigrants to Utah in the nineteenth century than any other country except Great Britain. Most of these Danes--nearly 17,000--were converts to the LDS Church, heeding an urgent millennialistic call to gather to "Zion."

It's funny you should post this because not long ago I was looking at some of these maps on Wikipedia. The thing I found most interesting was this map, which showed the ancestry with the largest population in each county:

I was absolutely astounded at how German this country is. It looks like about half the land area of the country is at least plurality-German. It looks like we're actually less an Anglo country than a German one.
I've got black friends. I employ black people. I don't employ them because they are black; I employ them because they are the best people who applied for the cotton-picking job.
