Slavery in Bethlehem: The Rediscovered 1780 Register of Northampton County’s Enslaved Persons
February 23 @ 5:00 pm
During the American Revolution, local officials in Pennsylvania were required to compile a list of every enslaved man and woman in each county. Northampton County’s “slave register” was thought to be lost–but it was rediscovered in June 2022!
This register reveals surprising new information about enslaved men and women in Moravian Bethlehem and in its satellite communities.
