Bracht - Stapper Farmstead

Dr. Bracht was an intelligent, outspoken young man who involved himself in the political situation in his country.  While attending the University, he had been vocal in expressing his liberal political views and had joined the General German Student’s Association.  With the defeat of the democratic initiatives in 1848, Felix Bracht was taken to trial in Wesel.  Although the outcome of the trial is unknown, Felix Bracht then decided to join his younger brother, Victor Bracht, and emmigrate to America.
