{Today on Colonial Quills} Pennsylvania 1756: Quaker Strivings for Peace amidst the French and Indian War

Israel Pemberton Jr, caricatured as “King Wampum,” in a political cartoon mocking the Quaker government of Pennsylvania. By H. Dawkins, 1764. Bc 612 D32a, Historical Society of Pennsylvania.

The novel I’m currently finishing takes place in 1756, and delves into Pennsylvania’s greatly deteriorating relationship with the province’s Indian tribes, as well as the effort that Philadelphia Quakers put forth to bring about peace. Today I’m talking about Quaker strivings for peace amidst the French and Indian War on Colonial Quills. We’d love to have you join us there.
