Deutsch: „Turnvater“ Friedrich Ludwig Jahn (* 11. August 1778 in Lanz; † 15. Oktober 1852 in Freyburg (Unstrut)).
  • Jahn war der Initiator der deutschen Turnbewegung, die von Anfang an mit der frühen Nationalbewegung verknüpft war.
English: Friedrich Ludwig Jahn (August 11, 1778 – October 15, 1852) — a pioneering Prussian athletics educator and 19th century German nationalist.
  • Jahn is commonly known as Turnvater Jahn, roughly meaning "father of gymnastics". He founded the Turnvereine gymnastics movement in the Confederation of the Rhine (1806-1813), during Napoleon's occupation of Germany.
  • The German Forty-Eighters exiles brought the Turnvereine movement to the U.S. from 1848 onwards, building Turner Halls across the country, which provided athletic, cultural, and political support to German immigrants.
