ANGERMANN, a river of Sweden, which rises about lat. 65º N. and long. 15º E., among the mountains that separate Sweden from Norway, and flows in a south-easterly direction through Westerbotten and Westnorrland, entering the Gulf of Bothnia near Hernosand, after a course of about 250 miles, during which it passes through several lakes. It is navigable for upwards of 50 miles from the sea, and the scenery on its banks is sometimes very beautiful.
