Michael Morgan - Delmarva's Patty Cannon

Michael Morgan will be here to sign copies of his latest book, Delmarva's Patty Cannon.

Truth lies behind the grim legend of Patty Cannon. In the early nineteenth century, Patty and her gang terrorized the Delmarva Peninsula, kidnapping free African American men, women and children. Using surprise and treachery, Cannon even employed a free African American accomplice to lure her unsuspecting prey. Captives who survived confinement in Patty's cells were sold south. The position of the Cannon home on the shadowy border between Delaware and Maryland allowed her to dodge the law until a local farmer unearthed the remains of her victims in 1829. Patty mysteriously died in jail awaiting trial.

The signing will take place on Thursday, July 9th at 10:00 AM.
