Three Pennamite Wars[edit]

There were three distinct Pennamite wars, the Yankees had their settlements destroyed four times, and there were several attempts to settle the disputes by various political means. I want to revise the present article, but perhaps not tonight.

Book: Fisher, Sydney George (1896). The Making of Pennsylvania. Philadelphia, PA: J. B. Lippincott Company. pp. pages=237–318. Klein, Philip (1980). A History of Pennsylvania. University Park: Pennsylvania State University Press. pp. 189–190. ISBN 0271002166. 

The Wilkes-Barre and Wyoming Valley articles also need improvements. --DThomsen8 (talk) 00:40, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Map from Sydney George Fisher book, 1896[edit]

The map from the Sydney George Fisher book, cited in the article and in the Wikimedia Commons file is in the public domain, because the author died more than 84 years ago, and United States copyright is only 75 years from the author's death.

Author:Sydney George Fisher (1856-1927)

Some or all works by this author are in the public domain in the United States because they were published before January 1, 1923.

The author died in 1927, so works by this author are also in the public domain in countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 80 years or less. Works by this author may also be in the public domain in countries and areas with longer native copyright terms that apply the rule of the shorter term to foreign works.

Unless someone can cite a more recent date than 1937 for a copyright for this book and the included map, I am going to reverse the deletion of the map. --DThomsen8 (talk) 00:09, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

I looked for the map in Fisher's The Making of Pennsylvania (1896) book--it is at Google books--and did NOT see it. Do you have a title and page number for the map? I DID see the map in the recent book still under copyright. Rjensen (talk) 00:25, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
