Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kandern is a town in southwestern Germany in the state of Baden-W rttemberg, in the Kreis of L rrach. During the Battle of Schliengen, in which the French Revolutionary army fought the forces of Austria, the battle lines of both armies terminated in Kandern. It is near a landmark called the "Three-Country Corner" from which one can see parts of Germany, France, and Switzerland. To many in North America, Kandern is best known as the birthplace of John Sutter. It was on Sutter's land that gold was discovered in 1848, marking the beginning of intensive settlement in California. Today, Kandern has a large community of English-speaking residents as a result of the presence of Black Forest Academy. This is an English-language institution founded in 1956. Most of the students are children of Christian missionaries from around the world, mainly from the United States, Canada, and South Korea.show more
