My Journey To America: July 24, 1914

Exactly 100 years ago today, my 18 year old grandfather, Kurt William Leucht, wrote the following entry into his journal:

 When I got up at 6:30am according to German time, it was 12:30am New York time.  On these days, not much happened that is noteworthy.  The sea became more turbulent, the ship swayed and many become seasick.  I myself had to vomit.  I went to sleep for six hours.  I couldn’t eat anything.  I finally ate the evening meal and went to bed at 8:00pm [Germany time].

You can read my grandfather’s entire journal by clicking below.  It’s quite interesting!  Of course, I’m biased!   🙂

Thanks for your interest!
