Migration
Mormonism began in the eastern US, but believers migrated west to Utah, an
area outside the authority of those who persecuted them.

that could be cultivated in the intermountain West.
Lack of inmigration

with different religions came in to this region because of lack of urbanization.

For ONE of these
religious groups,

factors that have
influenced the
distribution shown
on the map.
Factor
Explanation
Original
migration
from
northern and
western
Europe
1- German and Scandinavians migrated from Europe in large numbers, bringing
with them their religion – Lutheranism.
2 – Railroad companies and state governments recruited these groups to farm.
Chain migration occurred as relatives continued to arrive.
Lack of later
in-migrations
of other
religions
1 – Later groups from Europe (Jewish, Catholic, Orthodox) did not come, as the
region lacked the pull of cities.
2 – Upper Midwest did not attract rural to urban migration from the South
during the 20th century because of the smaller number of cities.

communities.

attracted to this predominantly agricultural region.
