Author Randy Holland tells the story of how an epic legal battle fought over many years in the English courts between Quaker William Penn, proprietor of Pennsylvania, and Lord Baltimore, proprietor of Maryland, had the unintended effect of ensuring Delaware’s future as a separate and independent state rather than a part of Maryland or Pennsylvania.
Randy Holland is a justice on the Delaware Supreme Court.
