The 2010 American Kossuth Legacies – five villages, two townships, and one Kossuth County
In December 1851, an American ship took Kossuth to the USA for an eight month triumphant tour. Young America was in its infancy & had only 23 million people. Kossuth addressed Congress in English & traveled to 16 states speaking to enthusiastic crowds. Over 150 years later, the legacy of Kossuth's visit includes streets, statues, at least five remaining Kossuth villages in NY, PA, OH, IN, & MS, two Kossuth townships in ME & WS, and one Kossuth County in Iowa.
