The Historical Society of Haddonfield’s next virtual general membership meeting will feature a presentation on the eighteenth century Brotherton Lenape Reservation in Burlington County.
We hope you can join us via Zoom on Wednesday May 26 at 7 pm. Tony McNichols of the New Jersey Pinelands Commission will be presenting, “Removed from their Natural Ways: The First Indian Reservation at Brotherton, Burlington County.” Tony will be discussing the 1758 establishment (and subsequent dissolution) of the Brotherton Lenape Reservation, as well as the egregious Walking Purchase and other colonial dealings with the indigenous tribes of the Northeast.
The event is free, though online donations are always welcome. You can register for the free Zoom event on Eventbrite, and we will send out the link and brief instructions by the day of the event.
Please join us on May 26 to learn more about the history of the reservation and colonial interactions with the Lenni-Lenape and other indigenous tribes. Register here, and we will send out the Zoom information by the day of the event. Questions? Email us at [email protected] or call us at 856-429-7375.
