"Zeal For the Service:" The Quakers and Their Pacifism Go to War
This article explores the critical role the Quakers played in the French and Indian War, or Seven Years' War, in Pennsylvania. Although they were maligned at the time, and by historians since, in reality the Quakers were a key component in the ultimate British victory. Instead of the Quakers and their pacifism obstructing the war effort in Pennsylvania, this paper shows that it was really the factional politics and shady dealings of the proprietors that were at fault.
