Wherever Quakers are found they are useful and steady citizens. Their eminence seems out of all proportion to the comparatively small numbers. -from "Types of the Population" First published in 1919, this now-classic book chronicles the settlement and early life of one of the most dynamic places in American history: the Mid-Atlantic coast, including Philadelphia. From William Penn's first association with the Quakers, which would eventually lead him to the colony named for him, to the British takeover of the Quaker communities in the 18th century, Fisher describes: - the founding of Pennsylvania - life in early Philadelphia - the affect of the French and Indian War in the region - the settling of New Jersey - plantation life and the culture of the trading class - how the disposition of the Quaker dramatically impacted the character of America - and much more. AUTHOR BIO: SYDNEY GEORGE FISHER (1856-1927) wrote extensively about the history of Pennsylvania, including The Making of Pennsylvania (1896), Pennsylvania, Colony and Commonwealth (1897), and The True William Penn (1900).
