The Pennsylvania Dutch have made a tremendous impact on our nation's development, and as recently as 1950, a half million individuals spoke or at least understood the Pennsylvania Dutch language. Despite this, many do not fully appreciate the curious and unique history of these people and their language. Join Bradley Smith for an entertaining discussion exploring the origins of the Pennsylvania Dutch and the importance of their legacy. Whether you are a "native Pennsylvania Dutchman," who grew up speaking the language, or a person who is completely new to our region, this program will have something for you!

Speaker Intro: Bradley Smith holds a Masters of History degree from Shippensburg State University and is the Assistant Director at the Berks History Center. A native of Lebanon County, he grew up in a PA Dutch family, hearing their language spoken everyday.

The period of 1755-1758 was a violent time in colonial Pennsylvania. There was no standing army to protect early inhabitants from the threat of hostile Native Americans and foreign forces at war with the British colonies. When the Pennsylvania Regiment was formed in 1756, one of the first things they did was build a series of forts along the Blue Mountains. This program highlights those forts, their purposes and their value.
