      EVENT DETAILS
      From Peaceable Kingdom to Slaughterhouse: Colonial Pennsylvania and Native Americans - Corry

      William Penn sincerely wanted to deal fairly with the Native American people
      who had long lived on the land he called Pennsylvania. The early years of
      Penn's colony are remembered by many as the Peaceable Kingdom. For seven
      decades, there was relative peace between the colony and Native Americans.
      However, William Penn had sowed the seeds of a disaster that his heirs
      eventually brought to fruition. Between 1755 and 1783, Pennsylvania and its
      Native inhabitants fought each other in three brutal, terroristic wars. Penn's
      Peaceable Kingdom became what has been called a slaughterhouse. This
      lecture will examine how and why that happened.
      – Larry Flatley, J.D.
