Harold Finigan, Historic Preservationist and Educator, will discuss how the people of Delaware County worked against the immoral nature of slavery. During the growth of this country some saw slaves as the answer to all the hard work that was needed to build a nation. Some, however, who had bought into the ideas of freedom & Penn’s Holy Experiment, saw slavery as inconsistent with these ideas. A portion of those who held that view worked outside the system, while others worked within the system to convince their brethren that slaveholding was inconsistent with the Golden Rule.
