Walking Purchase Timeline

Below is an initial attempt at a timeline for the Walking Purchase. It should be seen as a draft and is a working document. While initially, it will be largely based upon information from Steven Craig Harper’s book, Promised Land, which is one of the best sources on the history and impact of this event, it will eventually include much more. There’s a lot of information so please click through the many events. Note that this version has been superseded by a version constructed in my Indigenous Pennsylvania course (Fall 2024).
