Photo Gallery > Burlington's Impact on Our Nation

Lisa Schiller brought the rich history of Burlington City to the Shipman Mansion last night. The number of famous people touching on Burlington was amazing including Benjamin Franklin, Oliver Cromwell, Captain James Lawrence and General Ulysses S. Grant, to name just a few. Perhaps one of the most significant events occurring in Burlington was the Concessions and Agreements of 1677 that established the West Jersey organization and set forth a number of civil liberties for both the settlers and the Native Americans. This document later became the basis for the US Constitution. That is all part of the fascinating history of Burlington.
