was a great influence on the shape of modern Germany
. After the Second World War, Prussia's land was divided among the Soviet Union
, Poland, East Germany
and West Germany
and the state was abolished. Some Prussians remained in those countries after the war, while many others migrated to North America in search of a new start. Philadelphia was their primary point of entry to the United States, after which many of them moved on to Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland.

Johann Schramm came to Winterhill, Massachusetts in 1777.
