Please join us on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 at 7 p.m. for "William Penn and the Indians"
This program will be held in the auditorium of Valentine Hall at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg presented by Douglas Miller, Pennsbury Manor Historic Site Administrator.
Intrigue and politics were alive and well in early Pennsylvania history, a time when most of the State was the home of the native population and European settlement was only beginning. The story of the “Walking Purchase” began in the late 1600s, was “walked” in 1737, and was the subject of a Court review in the early 2000s. An important chapter of history to learn about.
This program is free and open to the public thanks to the generous sponsorship from ACNB Bank.
