Fun Fact: During World War II, Americans called hamburgers “liberty steaks”

The name “hamburger” comes from the seaport town of Hamburg, Germany, where it is thought that 19th-century sailors brought back the idea of raw shredded beef (known today as beef tartare) after trading with the Baltic provinces of Russia. During WWII, hamburgers in the U.S. were renamed “liberty steaks” to avoid their German-sounding name.
