In the category of entertaining distractions from the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Wilmington History Society, which for the last two years has been hosting a monthly happy hour speaker event, recently began a podcast.

Town Square Delaware readers will really enjoy this plunge into local history, in particular three of the first podcasts, interviews with local historian Bill Knightly on his incredibly detailed, original research into Wilmington During the Revolutionary War era.

A Salesianum graduate who moved back home after a long military career, Bill has dug up fascinating details from this long-overlooked period of Wilmington history. 

 

In the podcasts, we discussed the violent rivalry between the markets of 18th century Wilmington, the kidnapping by the British of Delaware’s governor off the streets of Quaker Hill, and where in Northern Delaware George Washington definitely slept. 

All of the Wilmington History Society podcasts can be found here.

Enjoy!
