Hermann in Gasconade County, Missouri — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
Hermann: Germania's Liberator
In the year A.D. 9 the warrior Hermann, then known as Arminius, led an army of northern Europeans to oppose a Roman intrusion into their homeland. In the ensuing Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, the annihilation of three Roman legions by Hermann's army has led historians to describe the battle as having changed the course of civilization.
The City of Hermann proudly recognizes this hero as its namesake.
