Tues., Feb. 15, 7 pm EST: “Tales of the Raftsmen”

 

Authentic (and inauthentic) tales of the rafters who took the logs from the region down the Delaware to be sold in Philadelphia, Camden and Easton. Particularly: "Boney Quillan and the Night 1000 Men Were Stranded in Narrowsburg" and "Zeal Ross and the False Teeth."
