Reasons for German to emigrate to USA in 1830s?

I'm researching 2 brothers who came to the USA about 1835, Wilhelm and Christoph Hillenbrand, while their brother Valentine remained in Germany. They were born in the Frankenthal area of Pfalz, Bayern. What might be reasons they came over here at that time?
