National German American Day October 6
We are going to share today is what national day ? The festival, which celebrates the German-American heritage, celebrates the date of 1683, when 13 German families from Krefeld, near the Rhine, landed in Philadelphia. These families then found German town, Pennsylvania, the first German colony in the original thirteen American colonies. Originally celebrated in the 19th century, the German-American day in the First World War was extinguished as a result of the prevailing anti-German mood. The festival was re-launched in 1983.
In 1983, President Ronald Reagan announced October 6 as a German-American Day to celebrate and celebrate the 300th anniversary of US immigration and American culture in the United States.  On 6 August 1987, the Congress approved the p. 11 Resolution 108, which on 6 October 1987 indicates as a German-American Day. It became public right 100-104, when President Reagan signed it on 18 August. A proclamation (No. 5719) for this purpose was published on 2 October 1987 by President Reagan at an official ceremony in the White House Rosengarten. The President urged Americans to observe the day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.
