The Handcart Song, about the Mormons from England, Scandanavia and other parts of Europe migrating to America and setting out across the plains with handcarts.
When I First Came to This Land is credited to the Germans (Pennsylvania Deutsch), but mistakenly credited to Dutch and Scandinavians in various posts in the Forum.
