Back in the 1800's the Germans who lived in Central Pennsylvania, were gullible. They were so easily duped, deceived, or cheated because they believed what people told them.
So some of the people in New York City would say to their friends or in letters to their friends, that it about time to go to Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and "Lift Germany!" They are so trusting, naive, and innocent these speakers of Germany. They will swallow anything.
