- #OTD in 1683, William Penn signed the "memorable treaty with Tamanend and other Delaware chiefs, of the Turtle Clan, under the great elm at Shackamaxon, within the limits of Philadelphia"...maybe... There is no actual record of the “Great Treaty,” the treaty made familiar to many by Benjamin West’s painting (shown here) and Voltaire’s allusion to it “as the only treaty never sworn to and never broken.” You can learn more about the debate at the Penn Treaty Museum and visit the Penn Treaty Park if you are in the Philadelphia area. #HistoryIsEverywhere #HistoryRelevance #OnThisDay #ThisDayInHistory #TodayInHistory #QuakerHistory #HistoryMatters

- British Quaker Joseph Pease was born #OTD in 1799. Pease was elected Member of Parliament for South Durham in 1832, but because he was a Quaker, he refused to take the oath of office and so was not immediately allowed to take his seat. A special committee considered the question and decided that Pease could affirm, rather than swear the oath, and so was finally allowed to take his seat in Parliament. This statue of him was erected in the center of Darlington in 1875 to mark the golden jubilee of the opening of the Stockton and Darlington Railway, a railway company which he and other members of his family started. #quakerhistory #onthisday #thisdayinhistory #todayinhistory #historyiseverywhere #historyrelevance #historymatters

- Over the next few weeks, we'll be highlighting individual posters from "Cooperation Means Prosperity." Today's poster is one Sam Stratman's favorites in the collection. ALL OUR COLOURS TO THE MAST "I love the image of the ship at full sail. Each sail represents a country that is part of a broader 'ship of state' and every nation is contributing to a greater enterprise." #marshallplan #wwii #truman #coldwar #coldwarhistory #historyrelevance #historymatters #localhistorymatters
