The Final Years for Jacob Weber

Backdrop

Jacob Weber lived in the district of Alsace, an area of importance and dispute between France and Germany. Now a region of France, it is small in area, being 8,280 km2 and densely populated. Alsace is located on the west bank of the upper Rhine river and is bordered by Germany and Switzerland.

Once inhabited by nomadic hunters, Alsace was invaded by the Romans around 58 BC, and was made a vigorous wine growing area. From the decline of the Romans until the 17th century, it was part of the Holy Roman Empire. In 1469, Upper Alsace was sold to Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy. During the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648), most of Alsace was conquered by France, and by 1648 all was in French hands except for some independent towns.

France consolidated her hold with the 1679 Treaties of Nijmegen, however Alsace had a somewhat exceptional position in the Kingdom of France. The German language was still used in local government, school and education. Alsace remained marked by German culture and economically oriented towards Germany until the French Revolution in 1789.
