In response to the Edict of Fontainebleau, Frederick William of Brandenburg declared the Edict of Potsdam, giving free passage to French Huguenot refugees, and tax-free status to them for 10 years. Born in Niemegk near Potsdam, Brandenburg, in 1850, Stein became a Professor at the Forest and Agriculture Institute in Tharandt in Sachsen (Saxony), 20 km south-west of Dresden. This was one of the leading forestry schools in Germany. Formal education in forestry began about 1840 when private forestry schools were established. These were the outgrowth of the old master schools. The forestry college at Tharandt developed from Cotta Master School. Though not of the same order Tharandt had close connections with the French National School of Forestry which was established in Nancy (Nancy, France), France in 1825. The work at Tharandt, under Stein's supervision was of a very high order, thoroughly professional and of very high technical standards. In 1855 he became professor at the University of Prague (Charles University in Prague) and served as a rector of the university in the year 1875 6. He was ennobled on April 27, 1878 in Vienna by Franz Josef I (Franz Joseph I of Austria). * ''Uncle Tom Andy Bill'' (1908) * ''A Gentle Knight of Old Brandenburg'' (1909) (about Princess Wilhelmine of Prussia and Margravine, consort of Frederick, Margrave of Brandenburg-Bayreuth - see ''The Little King: A Story of the Childhood of King Louis XIV '' (1910) '''Lübben (Spreewald)''' (Lower Sorbian (Lower Sorbian language): ''Lubin (Błota))'' is a town of 14,800 people, capital of the Dahme-Spreewald district in the Lower Lusatia region of Brandenburg, Germany. From 1930 until 1933, he was a professor at the newly founded Pedagogical Academy in Halle (Halle, Saxony-Anhalt). After the Nazis seized power, he was let go for political reasons and sent off to Tiefensee (Werneuchen) in Brandenburg to become an elementary schoolteacher. There, until 1939, he conducted many instructional experiments, which received a lot of attention, with educational progressivism and especially vocational education in mind. Reichwein described in his work ''Schaffendes Schulvolk'' ("Productive School People") his instructional concept, inspired by the Wandervogel movement and labour-school pedagogy, whose main focus was on trips, activity-oriented instruction with school gardens, and projects spanning age groups. For ''Sachunterricht'' (~field education, or practical learning) and its history, he included important historical documents. Reichwein split the instructional content into a summer cycle (natural sciences and social studies) and a winter cycle ("Man as former" "in his territory"). From 1939, Reichwein was working at the Folklore Museum in Berlin as a museum educator. thumb Adolf Reichwein at the Volksgerichtshof (File:Bundesarchiv Bild 151-11-29, Volksgerichtshof, Adolf Reichwein.jpg) '''Oderberg''' is a town in the district of Barnim, in Brandenburg, Germany.

For the most part it was a continuous territory with the exception of small enclaves like Halle (Halle, Saxony-Anhalt) and Jüterbog. Nordhausen and Mühlhausen were also areas outside the continuous portion of the imperial circle. Within the circle was the Archbishopric of Verden (Verden (state)), which was in personal union with the Archbishopric of Bremen since 1502. The Counties of Schaumburg (County of Schaumburg) and Spiegelberg were also part of the personal union, but they were not a part of the Lower Saxon Circle. 19th century was a great time for the development of Arnswalde. It was linked by railway with Stettin and Posen (Szczecin and Poznań) in 1848 and later with Berlin, also in the Brandenburg region (Brandenburg). Since now mass public transportation could be realized at lower costs, a new tourist industry was established in the town. The microclimate in the region drew in weekend tourists from as far as Berlin and Brandenburg whilst the new hospital next to the lake catered for convalescing patients.

Bentinck, who had already been sent in May to Brandenburg to recruit, but without much result, therefore negotiated contracts from 20 July (Gregorian calendar) for 13,616 German mercenaries from Brandenburg, Württemberg, Hesse-Cassel, and Celle to man Dutch border fortresses in order to free an equal number of Dutch elite mercenary troops for use against England.

Brandenburg

'''Brandenburg''' ( ) is one of the sixteen federated states (states of Germany) of Germany. The capital is Potsdam.

It lies in the east of the country and is one of the federal states that was re-created in 1990 upon the reunification (German reunification) of the former West Germany and East Germany. Brandenburg surrounds but does not include the national capital and city-state Berlin.

Originating in the medieval Northern March, the Margraviate of Brandenburg grew (Brandenburg-Prussia) to become the core of the Kingdom of Prussia, which would later become the Free State of Prussia. The eastern third (East Brandenburg) of historic Brandenburg (''Ostbrandenburg Neumark'') was ceded to Poland in 1945 (Oder-Neisse border).
