In the period 1864-1920 Schleswig (Sønderjylland - see map) was
German, and as German citizens the pro-Danish inhabitants had
to fight in the German army during World War I.
After the war a plebiscite was held, and the northern part of Schleswig
became Danish again. Now Sønderjylland is the name of the Danish part.
