Kemmerer___A Tower in Rothenburg

Rothenburg is a well preserved small medievil walled town where walls, towers and gates are common. In 1631 the Lutheran town was overwhelmed by 40,000 Catholic leaning troops for quartering. This devistated the town and the plague followed killing many citizens. The town was left broke and quit growing, thus preserving its medieval appearance.
