Hermann (Arminius), a Cheruscan chieftain, negotiated an alliance with Germanic tribes to defend Germania from Roman conquest. In 9 AD, Hermann's forces defeated the 17th,18th and 19th Legions of Imperial Rome commanded by Publius Quintilius Varus. The Battle of Teutoburg Forest ended in the annihilation of about 20,000 Legionnaires. The Monument is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2000, the 106th US Congress designated the Hermann Monument an official symbol of contributions made by Germanic-Americans.
