Holly in (then) West (New) Jersey on a peacemaking visit to (now) Wyalusing, Pennsylvania, a native American village along the Susquehanna River where Papoonhank was Chief of the Munsee tribe of Delaware.
You can experience Woolman’s walk by walking almost that distance around your neighborhood and hearing from 3 speakers on the subject present live online.
