From Shackamaxon Island to Haddonfield: Quakers and Lenapes in Early New Jersey

From Shackamaxon Island to Haddonfield: Quakers and Lenapes in Early New Jersey FebruaryFeb 22 2022 19:00 - 20:30 America/New_YorkZoom, PA

Jean Soderlund's presentation, "From Shackamaxon Island to Haddonfield: Quakers and Lenapes in Early New Jersey" will draw on information from her upcoming book, Separate Paths: Lenapes and Colonists in West New Jersey, which will be published this summer. This online program is part of Haddonfield Monthly Meeting's 300th anniversary celebration.
The Lenapes, including the Armewamese communities of the Cooper River and Timber Creek region, resisted full-scale colonization for decades. They remained sovereign, protecting personal and religious liberty while avoiding violence through peaceful conflict resolution. Though Friends shared these values, the epidemics and colonists' greed for land resulted in the decline of Armewamese towns similar to patterns in militarized colonies such as Virginia, Massachusetts and New Netherland.
Soderlund is a professor emeritus of history at Lehigh University. Her book Lenape Country: Delaware Valley Society before William Penn (2015) won the Klein Book Prize from the Pennsylvania Historical Association. She was also author of Quakers and Slavery: A Divided Spirit (2016).
Please pre-register; zoom information will be provided one day prior to the program.
