David Wilmot Day

Bradford County Courthouse 301 Main Street, Towanda, Pennsylvania

We will honor Towanda native, David Wilmot on August 5th, the writer of the Wilmot Proviso, which began the chain of events that led up to the Civil War. His Proviso states: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall exist in any part of said territory, except for crime, whereof the party shall be duly convicted." […]
