Because at the time, there were a lot of German American families in the colonies. If I remember history, there were two german imigrations, one very early in the the Grand experiment and one dureing the 1900's....
I understand there were alot of german settlers but i am highly skeptical that the entire country would vote on whether or not everyone would have to speak a foreign language. Do you have any sources that back this up?

Certainly, you must understand that when this vote went public, we were a newly formed country. There weren't any rules governing a lot of things. It should also be noted that German as a language was not considered foreign at the time. Most people spoke old english, which is a german hybrid, and modern english was derived from it. Try reading some early American text that hasn't been translated. It was written in old english. Give me a bit here and I will post a couple of reff's for ya.

Well, Vorsicht709, I am WRONG, it would seem that the library of Congress has only a recent vote on record. It also states and references a urban legend about a german, english vote. As it turns out though there has never been an official language in the US as the congress at the time thought it was not the governments place to decide. There was however a petition to translate all of our laws to german. It was decided by one vote. If you would like to know more? Here is a link to a well written essay on the subject including references.www.watzmann.net/scg/german-by-one-vote.html
