…the Forty-Eighters brought something like a wave of spring sunshine… They were mostly high-spirited young people, inspired by fresh ideas which they had failed to realize in the old world, but hoped to realize here; ready to enter upon any activity profitable but also to render life merry and beautiful; and, withal, full of enthusiasm for the great American Republic which was to be their home and the home of their children. Carl Schurz Reminiscences
