William Penn and the Indians
William Penn is shown at center with the Delaware Indians at the time of the Treaty of Shackamaxon in 1682. This treaty formalized the purchase of land in Pennsylvania and cemented an amicable relationship between the Quakers and the Indians for almost a hundred years. Penn was the last figure on which Brumidi worked.
