Those who had courage to stay settled inside the newly built Forts. Continual battles were fought for the land, the riches of the ports, and their attempt at the settling new places. These battles were bloody and violent. As each country would come to review locations in the new world, they would brutally destroy others settlements, pillaging and torturing the existing settlers, selling them into slavery, and the names of the towns and forts would change with the new ownership. Originally settled by the Dutch, Delaware changed hands and names over and over. It was part of New York under the Duke of York, became a Province of Maryland, and then purchased and owned by William Penn, a Quaker, as part of Pennsylvania, within a relative short time period. The division of the land was made by the Delaware River and the clashing of the representatives of Delaware and Pennsylvania. William Penn’s review of the situation aided in the separation of land, this created the state of Delaware. Delaware was considered a border state during the Civil War. They were stuck in the middle, bordering both Union and Confederates. Ultimately taking sides with the Union, this separated families, friends, and neighbors. Slavery existed in Delaware, but was phasing out due to the Quaker run assembly who did not agree with the brutal practice. However, the lower part of the state did. With freedom route just a state north to Pennsylvania or New Jersey, Delaware and its cities of Wilmington and Camden, became a nexus for the Underground Railroad. Abolition of slavery began in Delaware. Just as many wanted slavery as those who wanted to abolish it. Legends of those who would re-capture escaped slaves and shackle them for resale or torture this death was a twisted brutal reality of life. The Cannon and Johnson gangs’ greed for money and thirst of torture, aided in their business, the business of slave resale. Legends of the torture from the Cannon gang continue from the depth of evil with Patty Cannon, who committed suicide in jail awaiting sentence for multiple murders, her body buried in a local cemetery, but it is believed that her head is said to be located inside The Dover Public Library inside a hatbox. Delaware was torn in two. Families, friends, even neighbors by the state divided and the brutal repulsive times in Delaware. During the Civil War, Delaware is mostly known for its prison - Fort Delaware. Shiploads of prisoners were brought here by the thousands. A prison ill equipped to handle the volume of prisoners. Lack of clean water, food, and medicine brought some of the most repulsive violent living conditions.
