    There needs tio be a point of clarification here. English was not made the Official language at the time that Congress considered adopting German. English (American English) was the defacto language at that time. The proposal to adopt German as the national language was the first effort to alter what had been the accepted status quo. Obviously it was based on the substantial increase in German speaking immigrants and their natural desire to make their language pre-dominate. The proposal failed in Congress and was laid to rest along with many other efforts to make one or another of our constituent parts superior. English was the traditional language of the nation and remains so to this date. Thanks
    Thanks for your input Winnie
