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.
