Who was the Roman historian who wrote about the invading German tribes?

I can't be 100% sure whose name you are looking for, but I'm pretty sure you're thinking of Tacitus. He's famous across multiple disciplines, including history, anthropology, Western Civ, and Roman Studies, so his name comes up a lot. One of his major accomplishments is a huge series of tomes in which he describes everything from Roman politics to the Roman creation myth. In one of the books, he talks about some of the German tribes to the the north, commenting primarily on cultural features, many of which he considers admirable. One example cited is that when warring, the German tribes often bring their wives and children to the battlefield in an effort to inspire the fighters to fight harder (presumably in order to avoid dying on front of their loved ones).Other suggestions:Tacitus wrote about Germanic invasions of the 1st Century, but most people referring to the Germanic invasions are talking about the period of the 4th through 8th centuries. Jordanes was the only Roman historian to record the early history of the Goths, in a book called the Getica. Cassiodorus wrote on the invasions, but this history has been lost. Procopius also wrote about the Goths, but mostly about the recovery of Italy from the Ostrogoths. But there were a number of other early medieval writers who wrote about the Migration Period.Please see the links below.

Why were the Anglo Saxons called Anglo Saxons?

England was at one time inhabited by a tribe called the Angles, and then England was invaded by a Germanic tribe called the Saxons, and as these two ethnic groups gradually merged, they became the Anglo-Saxons.

What event during 1849 and 1850 caused the immigrants to come to America?

In the aftermath of the failed revolutions of 1848-49 a number of liberals fled to the U.S., especially from Central Europe. However, at that time migration was already in full swing anyway. So, there is room for debate as to how many 'extra' migrants went to America for political reasons at the time. (Large scale migration from the German-speaking lands grew sharply from about 1830 onwards, and is often cited as one of the reasons for the establishment of the Hamburg-America Line (HAPAG) in 1847. This predates the failed revolutions).
