Immigrants continued to travel from the Philadelphia area south through the Great Valley beyond Shenandoah, to the vicinity of the modern city of Roanoke, Virginia. There is a wide gap in the Blue Ridge near Roanoke. A branch of the Great Wagon Road began there, crossing through the gap east into the Piedmont region of North Carolina and South Carolina. This road became known as the Carolina Road. During the 1750s the stream of migrants traveling south through the valley and into the Carolina Piedmont grew into a flood. At the time, the Carolina Piedmont region offered some of the best land at the lowest prices. Soon a string of towns appeared, including Salisbury (Salisbury, North Carolina), Salem (Winston-Salem, North Carolina), and Charlotte (Charlotte, North Carolina) in North Carolina. In the decades before the American Revolution the Piedmont "upcountry" of the Carolinas was quickly settled, mostly by recent immigrants who had migrated from the north to the south via the Great Valley. Many of these immigrants were Scots-Irish (Scotch-Irish American), Germans from the Rhineland-Palatinate area, and Moravians (Moravians (ethnic group)). This "upcountry" population soon surpassed the older and more established "lowcountry" population near the Atlantic coast, causing serious geopolitical tensions in the Carolinas during the late 18th century (Meinig, 1986: 291–293). '''Westerburg''' is a small town of roughly 6,000 inhabitants in the Westerwaldkreis in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.

The Reno River in Italy shares a similar etymology. The spelling with -h- suggests influence from the Greek spelling of the name, ''Rhenos'', seen also in ''rheos'', "stream", and ''rhein'', "to flow". '''Speyer''' (formerly known as ''Spires'' in English) is a city of Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany with approximately 50,000 inhabitants. Located beside the river Rhine, Speyer is 25 km south of Ludwigshafen and Mannheim. Founded by the Roman (Ancient Rome)s, it is one of Germany's oldest cities. The first known names were ''Noviomagus'' and ''Civitas Nemetum'', after the Teutonic tribe, Nemetes, settled in the area. Around the year 500 the name '''Spira''' first appeared in written documents. ''Spire'', ''Spira'', and ''Espira'' are still names used for Speyer in the French, Italian, and Spanish languages. 297px thumb Coloured engraving of Ingelheim, Matthäus Merian (File:Ingelheim merian 1645.jpg), 1645 '''Ingelheim am Rhein''' is a town in the Mainz-Bingen district in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany on the Rhine’s west bank.

'''Jakob Maria Mierscheid MdB (Member of Parliament)''' (born 1 March 1933) has been a fictitious politician in the German (Germany) Bundestag since 11 December 1979. He was then the alleged deputy chairman of the ''Mittelstandsausschuss'' (Committee for Small and Medium Sized Businesses) of the Bundestag in 1981 and 1982. According to his official biography, he was born in Morbach Hunsrück, a very rural constituency in Rhineland-Palatinate. He is Catholic and a member of the Social Democratic Party of Germany. Rudolf Rocker was born to the lithographer Georg Philipp Rocker and his wife Anna Margaretha née Naumann as the second of three sons in Mainz, Hesse (Grand Duchy of Hesse) (now Rhineland-Palatinate), Germany on March 25, 1873. This Catholic, yet not particularly devout, family had a democratic and anti-Prussian (Kingdom of Prussia) tradition dating back to Rocker's grandfather, who participated in the March Revolution (Revolutions of 1848 in the Habsburg areas) of 1848. However, Georg Philipp died just four years after Rocker's birth. After that, the family managed to evade poverty, only through the massive support by his mother's family. commons:Rheinland-Pfalz

(Image:Birmingham District copy.jpg) In 1919, Manning’s talents took him to Birmingham, Alabama, where he worked on a new design for the city. He recommended a radical resource-based plan which included “multiple neighborhood-based centers determined by available resources” (Karson, 2001). He also makes note of the importance of parks throughout the city stating that “the cities that are best designed have about one-eight of their area in parks and about one acre to 75 people” (Manning, 1919). This approach was in direct contrast to the then popular City Beautiful movement which emphasized monumental civic centers and Beaux Arts architecture style public buildings (Karson, 2001). The architectural design of the Chicago Columbian Exposition was based in the City Beautiful movement, but now, on his own, Manning decided on a different course following his own landscape theories which were based on the natural available resources. This idea was the basis for his creation of the “wild garden” which he applied to many of his landscape designs.
