Writing to Crenshaw, King said Campbell was a traitor on the order of Jefferson Davis, and no more entitled to release than Davis. In John A. Moretta’s book William Penn and the Quaker Legacy, he sets out to accomplish the task of humanizing William Penn. Throughout this book, Moretta not only explains Penn’s life and history, but he also gives a look into the rise of Quakerism, important characters in the Friends’ movement, and Penn’s vantage point of both England and the New World during the late s/5(4).
