September 25, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Cumberland County was founded in a violent game of empires.  The Europeans that settled the county learned hard lessons from wars and revolutions, lessons that shaped county history for over a century.  In a series of four presentations Jeff Wood will tell the dramatic story of the Cumberland Valley from 1730 to the eve of the Civil War.  Native history, Scots-Irish and German settlement, tensions with colonial government, early national identity, the Whiskey Rebellion, and the legacy of a frontier spirit will all be woven into the story.

Jeff Wood is the owner of Whistlestop Bookshop, an independent book store founded in 1985, past-president of the Bosler Memorial Library and the Cumberland County Historical Society, and presenter of the CCHS’s Fall Series since 2000.  He is an adjunct instructor of American Studies at Dickinson College.
